Candle Snuffer With Dingle Dangle Bling

30 Minutes
Easy

I love candles but can not bear the smell when you blow them out. Not only the smell but the smoke. I never blow out candles. I light candles all year in every room especially during the holidays, so much so, my 10 year old candle snuffer finally broke apart. I went to my favorite import store, but they only had the bell snuffers not the dip and lift. So I decided to make my own. Maybe you would like to make one too. They also make nice little stocking stuffers for candle lovers.

Decide on the length you would like your handle. I cut  the wire at 10 inches. At 2-1/14 inches from top, make loop around your finger. Pinch wires ends together using your needle nose pliers.

    Thank you for posting! I sell JIC candles (www.jewelryincandles.com/store/mandyreeder) and I have been looking for a cute little gift to add in with some of my customer's orders. These are perfect. Plus I have a lot of beads laying around :)

      @Mandy Reeder that's great! I give them too as favors at dinner parties. They get a hoot out of them. So glad I could be of help. Thank you.
