    We make these using tea light candles. They’re really very cool. Once we went to a park and just made a whole bunch of them, and sat there as people walked by and admired them. Judging by some of the responses, I’d recommend this as an activity for single folks- make sure you have some hot chocolate and those little marshmallows back at your place.
