  1. Wow! These snow oil lamps are the perfect accessory for my Christmas outdoor table. We live in South Florida, so snow isn’t something we see here. I’ll definitely do this for 2018 Holiday Decor.
    Thank you for such an easy but effective way to dress up the holidays!

  2. Wow this looks so pretty and would have been perfect for our Christmas dinner this year! Im saving this to do this time round! Thank you for joining us at #bigpinklink

  3. Lina,
    This is such a clever craft and a beautiful, soothing way to light up your night. I’m a senior citizen but have never made a candle/oil lamp from vegetable oil. There is so much that the typical person does NOT know. I love the snowy candle lamps and using a piece of copper wire and a piece of cotton string to brighten up a corner table or even your dining room/kitchen table. No reason not to have candlelight every night at dinner! Thanks for sharing this simple idea!
