Once I made a gel candle in glass, if you will notice minutely, you can see a bride & groom in the candle..& a heart too. I put this ceramic couple in glass & then pour some gel & glitter with a heart shape bead.

place the paper lantern over the gel glass not place around any other candle, because its paper & the flame may cause anything be careful plz.
