Trading Ideas: Candle Decoration: "Candle Decoration
First, wrap one long strand of copper wire around the candle several times to create a copper base, wrapping more around the bottom, and less as you get higher on the candle. To keep wires in place, finish your wrapping by twisting your remaining wire around a few wrapped wires until fastened. Then add assorted beads to another long strand of copper wire. The one shown has a mixture of seed beads and all different shapes and sized of glass beads. Wrap wire around the bead and back through the hole to keep in place on the wire. Or you can just leave space between the beads to allow them to 'float' or be movable. Keep doing this with multiple copper wires until you have reached the desired effect.

I need to remember HOW to do this. I'm going to be making this for the fair. I hope, me, a person who is all thumbs, can do this. How exciting!
