So, in order to make things fresh and "new" while we wait, I am doing a room by room face lift or "finish" if that particular room wasn't completely finished. The bedroom is almost finished, but I'm not ready for a full reveal just yet. I want to show off my candles though as they are one project that came together for me today!
I wanted to update the candles over my bed, but didn't want to spend a minimum of $10 for new pillars. so I gave mine a make over. I get so excited when I start a project that I forget to take the "before" picture, so just imagine a dusty, dented, cream-colored pillar candle. I wrapped it in a textured scrapbook cardstock and the put a strip of coordinating textured cardstock. The middle still needed something, so I used my Craft Robo ( for the first time! ) and made a fluer de lis from black textured cardstock and hot glued it on. Very easy to do and at $1.00 for all the supplies makes them easy on the purse too!
No pictures of my many blessings in my frame yet...
I am really pleased with the way these turned out and the pictures don't do them enough justice, I think it's textured paper and the texture doensn't show up...oh well. I am going to try to do some candles for Easter to go in my $Tree hurricane vase. I wonder how easy it will be to change the papers and accents seasonally?
I'm going to share these over at:
