Love this idea. Poster's comments: Easter Egg Candleholders--Made these. They're cute, but the rounds turned out to be REALLY expensive at the craft store, and I couldn't find them anywhere else. As a result, I used thin bases, and they were quite wobbly.
This is a cute idea for an evening outside party, just place some around to create a nice and cozy mood. If you want to make it more natural then keep the wash-pins brown, otherwise paint them with a nice bright color for a spring or summer celebration. -SvH
