Film Roll Candle Rings…

Lets face it, film is getting more outdated every second and new generations (including some of mine) may not even know what it is. The effects film gives to a picture are popular now and can be seen in the filters on Instagram too.  I personally like the negatives more and we have plenty of them at my house stashed in our closet.
I thought I might as well help others put these cool pieces of art to use. This is super simple, a 30 second project.
They are obviously pretty transparent which works great to make a little candle ring! All you need is a fake candle, I think a real candle might burn the edges but I don’t want to find out. Unless you do it and it ends up looking cool :).  I’ve got an overwhelming response that film is highly flammable so I caution you from using a real candle (A “daft Pinterester could burn their entire house down”-laughed about that comment for a while)
Just wrap…
… and tape! If you want extra strength you can tie it together through the holes but I find that the tape is usually strong enough.
I find that it still lets the light shine through. It is just bright enough that if you look closely you can see the tiny pictures :).

P.S. If all else fails, Gus really liked to play with these if they fell on the floor. Candle ring or cat toy! So versatile!
