ok, i know that this is different and silly and probably doesn't fit. . .
but martha stewart had this craft for making a menorah with a branch
and some candle holders and such. . .i think it's beautiful.
i was thinking of making one for us to use on special occasions. i don't know if it will function the same as a ring (as i think that's supposed to grow?), and i'm not sure why they are used (it is just because they're nice/pretty? how do you use them?).
anyway, i was just thinking about this craft; looking forward to doing it in NZ (i'll probably leave mine in it's natural color and not do the glitter, btu i like the candle clips which can allow me to do multiple days or different numbers of candles).
