Since I'm at the "age" where a full nights sleep is just a pipe dream I spend the very early hours sitting and thinking. Unfortunately not with any clarity about anything that will bring world peace or eliminate world hunger but still..... During one of these early mornings I was sitting on my porch and looking at this very sad candle that had lost its grip during our recent 90 degree + days and wondering how to stop this from happening during the summer months. Like I said...no world peace epiphany for me but I think I came up with something that may be the cure for drooping candles on a summer porch. My disclaimer is that my porch is open air so the temperature is the actual temperature not what a hot box it would be if it were enclosed. All I can say is if you suffer from this porch affection you might want to give this a try.
What you say is my great epiphany????? I wrapped each of the candles in an old book page left over from another project and dang if they haven't held up straight as an arrow for the past few uber hot days.
Needless to say you wouldn't want to actually light these candles as a small house fire will usually send hubby into a small fit of hysteria. On some of the candles I left the top showing with the color of the candle and on others I wrapped it all the way to the top. This was just an experiment using the candles I had on hand that I was willing to sacrifice if this didn't actually work. I used a double stick tape to close the book page around the candle and again, so far its held just fine.
So grab those droopy candles girls and start wrapping.
