MrsYellowDaffodil:  So sorry about your injury. The candleholders look nice, but I think they would look better with a few more layers of petals. The blog ones had at least 4 layers.

Next time you are using a glue gun, keep a container of cold water with ice nearby.

MrsYellowDaffodil:  I’m in awe of your writing skills. Ssomeone who can turn ” I burned my finger with a hot glue gun” into 13 paragraphs should apply to be a blogger bee.

MrsYellowDaffodil:  Oh no, I’m sorry about the injury. But the DIY looks good. I might steal this idea for general decor purposes. 😉 Are you using battery operated tealights? I’d be afraid to put a real candle inside.

Ice water and ice packs are really not good for burns. If you burn yourself to the point that it is blistering, cool, unmoving water is better first aid because it does not freeze or further irritate the skin. Or stock your home first aid kit with burn gel– there’s a bunch of different brands out there and they’re usually just $6 or so at your local drug store.  Once the skin is already damaged, you don’t want to further damage it by putting it in running water, or letting it in contact with anything freezing!
