  • Thank you! I love how they look like fluffy flowers- giant carnations maybe?

    Beautiful, but don't you worry that they will catch on fire?
  • No- I did this almost a year ago and have had no problems at all with them. The only worry I ever had was that if I left the lights on long enough, it might melt the hot glue, but that's never happened (yet)
