    Very pretty, but I would be afraid to use it with a real candle. I always forget and leave them burning too long.

    You can use mason jar candles or else LED candles are the best choice.. Thank you :)

    Very Pretty!! I made very simple one for diwali, not as intricate and pretty like yours I used the LED tea light instead of the wax candle and they look almost as pretty as wax candle and are way safer.
