      Oh, I love your candle sconce, that is so pretty! I want to make some autumn sconces using the new wineglass tea light lamp tutorial and add some flowers around the base for our mantle. Last year we used the candy corn idea and I got a ton of compliments from various guests throughtout the season. One thing though, if you have high humidity, the candy corn will get sticky!
