Since everyone has seemed to have noticed that I have a bit of a Yankee Candle obsession at the moment, my friend bought me a 'Happy Holiday Trees' Yankee Candle tart burner.
The tart burner is white with lots of pictures of trees round the outside of it. The first thing that I really liked about the tart burner is that the trees are really cool designs, some of them are stripy, have different coloured dots, different patterns, and are different sizes. There are a total of 15 trees painted on it all together, and all of them are different.
The burner is around 13cm tall and is cylindrical with a section at the top which is shaped almost like a little bowl where you put the tarts. There is a hole in the body of the tart burner where you place a tea light so that it starts to heat up the burner, there is a little dip in the bottom that the tea light sits in, which is quite handy so you know that you have placed the tea light in exactly the right place!
To use the tart burner you simply pop a wax tart (or special burner oil) in the top section of the burner, and light a tea light and pop it in the bottom section. Easy as that! The tart burner warms up quite quickly, and it does get quite warm just under the top section so I don't recommend touching or trying to move the tart burner while its on. Not only do you run the risk of burning your fingers, but also of spilling the oil or wax which can be quite hard to clean off things.
Wax tarts and burning oil are very easy to get a hold of. Yankee Candle recommends that you use Yankee Candle wax tarts and tea lights in the tart burner, but they would say that! You can use any make of wax tarts, oil or tea lights. The Yankee Candle wax tarts cost around £1, and these are what I currently use as they have a great range of scents and last for ages.
There are four small foam pads on the bottom of the burner, which I think is a really good idea as when the tea light starts burning down it can get quite warm so the foam pads stops the burner from any potential burning to a table.
I'm not sure where my friend bought the tart burner, but I have seen one online for £4.75 reduced from £5.49 from Yankeedoodle.co.uk which seems like a great price for it as I love the design and it works really well. I know its past Christmas but I'm still using it, and will probably use it all throughout the year since I like it so much!
