I'm considering buying my own candles, ribbons etc to make my own unity candles. Anyone know where I'd get something like the diamante fastener at the front to fasten the ribbon with? Have no idea what they're called - have searched on EBay but no success yet. :wv [img:11xixjl3]http://www.weddingaccessories.net/catalog/WSET582W-diamond-unity-candle-set.jpg[/img:11xixjl3]

Mrsmcg2b: Those candles are fab. think I might try to do something similar. what type of gems would you use the stick on the candles?

Dipsy80 They are called flat back crystals, some are called hotfix crystals but you need a hot glue gun to apply those. You can get them in lots of colours. Here's some swarovski ones on ebay [url=http://cgi.ebay.ie/CLEAR-FOILED-SWAROVSKI-CRYSTALS-HOT-FIX-FLAT-BACK-4MM_W0QQitemZ330362203881QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Crafts_Beads_CA?hash=item4ceb1f2ee9&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14:cf653u4h]Ebay crystals[/url:cf653u4h] K
