Tell us about yourself!
I made a mobile of CDs and DVDs by gluing the title sides together and drilling two small holes at opposite ends of the edge. I strung them together with thread and hung them from the fan lights in my office. The fan makes them move and flash. Everyone who sees them remarks how interesting and pretty they are. Kids can't keep their eyes off them. Thanks for reminding me. I never thought to draw designs on them; very interesting.
When I used to make emergency candles I used old mop string for wicks.It burns well and costs nothing. You can get hundreds of wicks from one old mop. If you find they burn too fast you can dip them in melted wax and twist them tighter, or twist more strands together for a larger wick. Just a suggestion.
