Ok I have a question.
How high do you fill the jar with the parafin oil? I realise you have to have the wick in it but how deep? Does the tail portion of the wick need to be completely immersed or only 1"?

BTW - Love your new avatars!

Thanks,

mema2dandk, I made the snow globe type one and used hot glue, within 2 days everything was floating. Guess the glue didn't like the oil.

Lori, I found the wick holders and wicks here locally and you're right they are expensive. I paid $12.99 ($14.09 with tax ours is 8 1/2 %!) for 6 of them!

Ladies, I did a "snow globe" type one, and after 2 days everything was floating. I also noticed, I had to trim the wick every day. So I fished everything out except my painted rocks (to look like mounds of snow) and filled with green potpourri, it looks much better and the potpourri anchors and hides the wick so it burns much better.

I put white lace around the jar lid, and with the white rocks on the bottom the potpourri is sandwiched between white. It looks very pretty.
