The houses are pretty just by themselves, but were created without floors, and with a small vent below the eaves of either side of the house to allow it to be placed over a small votive candle (or a battery powered mini-votive). They look so magical when they're lit.
*****Please do not leave lit houses unattended. When left lit for awhile, the glass and metal get hot, so to extinguish the candle, blow through the side-vents. Once the house has cooled, you can remove the candle.*****

If you would like a house done in custom colors, with photos of your loved ones in it, or any other idea you may have, please feel free to convo me! I can accommodate pretty much any request!

I Will Ship Internationally! Just convo me with your address and I'll let you know shipping costs!
