Default Another Holiday Decoration

The candle shop wanted more designs to help sell their candles so I came up with this one.
Approximately 7.5" wide at 9.75 high.
Made one set and it sold with 4 of the votive candles in the first day. Now they want at least
6 more sets before Thanksgiving when they really start to get busy.
This is going to get real interesting. LOL

Great creativity, Jim. Nice job, too.

If eating carrots improves the eyesight, how come there are so many dead rabbits on the roads?

Might want to try something along these lines.

Nice and simple is always best. Great ideas!!

Just a hint: When it becomes a business with time deadlines, it's not as much fun.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

All of those are great. Got me thinking about other holidays, birthdays, annivesaries, romantic moods. You might do an image search for candle holders, centerpieces, etc., and then search for images around birthdays, anniversaries romantic, holidays. You can get a head start so they have a few months of selling time before the stuff is dated. Oh, I forgot about weddings, romance to the max and happen all year. Honeymoon moons for example, light up the romance.

I think this would appeal to other candle shops and gift shops that sell candles. There's a small retirement business if you keep it local, say 50-100 miles. This could finance a CNC purchase as well so you can add words, poems, sayings, platitudes to your flat pieces.

Now I think of it, how about bible quotes for religions book stores, same kinds of things apply but with a spiritual theme. And patriotic themes for the 4th, or even military service emblem plaques?

I do like thinking of business stuff, especially stuff from which you can make a little extra retirement money.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

This might go over particularly well in Florida, which seems to be afflicted with a poisionous frog.

"Giant poisonous toads are spreading throughout Florida, and you should probably keep your pets away from them.

Non-native cane toads have started appearing everywhere from the Keys all the way up to Lake Okeechobee, and even Tampa Bay, reports News-Press.

These invasive toads can grow to 10-inches long, and are one of the largest toad species in the world. Florida Fish and Wildlife says that when they feel threatened, the toads excrete a milky poison that oozes from their skin, which can be deadly to animals, especially to anything that tries to eat them (like a dog or cat). They ooze can also irritate the skin and eyes of people. "

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I suppose it is too much to hope that the Burmese Pythons will eat them.

Don't know about Burmese Pythons eating cane toads but almost every reptile in Australia will. Quolls & other carnivorous animals are dying out wherever cane toads are found. They were imported into North Queensland initially to attack sugar cane beetles which were causing cane growers distress,but this was a dismal failure & now can be found in the Northern Territory,North Western Australia,Queensland of course & New South Wales.Our borders it seems,have been well & truly smitten with frogs,or toads anyway.JJ
