We have been making these for a few years now, I love the way they look. I line the front steps with them. I put tea-light in them, buy a big bag from the craft store... I just use my tupperware or old buckets to make them I have all different shapes and sizes... It keeps the winter spirit up!!! http://frozenreindeer.com/2007/12/28/traditional-house-candles-in-ice-finland-christmas/ We have a bunch this year, much bigger also... they are so pretty. The girls love them.
