Fire Hazard, or Not?

I decided to cover the bases of my chandelier in my kitchen.  

I really just want a new chandelier or lighting fixture - 
like one of these ....

But a new chandelier is not in the budget.  Sigh.  However, printing two sheets of cardstock on my color printer IS in the budget.

So I printed this cute greek key design....



And then I measured and cut and covered.

It was really quite easy.






My husband may have a fit when he sees the covers.  He freaks out when he sees a candle lit in our 1850's home.  



(I shared my ridiculously easy felt garland tutorial here.)

On to a more light-hearted topic - Something a little less disturbing than a house fire.  

How about a little scripture art?  I painted these this week and they are two of my favorites, now....

Interesting question - not sure if they would be a fire hazard. But they look cute!

My husband was in a serious fire on a company retreat about 8 or 9 years ago, so he also freaks out whenever there is a flame in the house. Luckily LED candles have come a long way and look quite nice!

They sure do brighten and you could change them out for different seasons and holidays. I think regarding a fire hazard just keep the bulbs at a lower wattage maybe? Newer bulbs have come a long way, many give no heat at all! You were good to have kept the paper away from the bulb stem!
