Candles & Wall Railing

Something came up today and I decided to skip my post about printing out pictures. I decided to post about another fun decoration that we see at the Vox Theatre - candles on the picture rails along the wall.

Christina & Jonathan were the first couple to put candles on the rail. They put 5 candles in each of the 8 rails for a total of 40 candles. The candles they used were a little big for the railing, but we loved the look so we decided to see if there are some candles out there that would work.

So being a former engineer, I got my tape measure and created a simple drawing of what the railing looks like. I then realized I already had some candles that I wanted to try. Amazingly enough, they fit. The search was over before I even started. Unfortunately, these were given to me, so I can't tell you exactly what store carries them. However, I have seen similar in a few of the hobby stores.

These candles fit in the railing. If you are out looking and find them and want to put candles on the rail, look for these...or something similar that is less than 1.75 inches wide.
