I've fall-en for church candles

I love church candles and recently realised I don't have any around my home. So, it was time to put that right with an Autumnal Candle...
And this is a true scented candle as the decoration is potpourri.
I took a few pieces from the pack and glued them together.

I tied a few strands of garden raffia around the candle.
To make the decoration easy to remove when you want to light the candle, I attached a paper clip to the back. This could then just be clipped on to the raffia to cover the knot.
A simple candle which smells great without needing to be lit.
