Unusual Bokeh

This is a simple picture of a candle with some white christmas lights in the background. To get the flame shaped bokeh I used my 50mm prime lens set at f1.7, and I placed a piece of black construction paper in front of the lens with a small flame-shaped hole cut out in the center. This basically gives the lens iris a different shape, and all out of focus points of light will conform to that shape.
