I have an Harry Potter's small room.
I wanted to have floatting candles to light the room.
The few tricks I had seen involved tealight LED candles fixed on the ceiling with fishline. But that wouldn't do for me, as I didn't want to have to turn them on/off one by one each time I needed light.
I therefore bought an electric garland during Christmas at Ikea Store, but didn't purchase any of the decorations proposed. Instead, I designed my own : twelves candles.
I made them on 3 distincts parts So I can pass the electric wire on them.
The flame is printed with fluorescent PLA to had a bit of fun when turning off the light.
I still have a bit of work to do on the ceiling to hide most of the electric wire, but couldn't resist the pleasure to share this piece of work. Of course the bit of wire who is going down to the candle can't be hide, but at least, I switch the floating candles on/off with no effort and no stress to run out of battery.
REMINDER : Do NOT let this ON for TOO LONG as it is plastic versus HOT source of energy. Be responsible about the possible side effect.

I made two different length to change a bit the monotony of it
