Draw on wax paper with permanent markers, wrap around candle and heat until image is transferred. It would be great to do this for Mother's Day, or Teacher Appreciation Day - have kids draw on wax paper and give her a personalized candle.
Paint Dipped Pinecones - Would make a great centerpiece with some red glass ornaments mixed in a clear glass jar! Might try this then add glitter for my Christmas tree this year cuz we know I gotta have my pine cones!
If you were to use drift wood this would be awesome for a beach reception style thing. Very natural, but striking. Drill holes in wood, place tea lights. Beautiful outdoor table center piece for the picnic table---AROUND THE GARDEN POOL
