You might remember my last giveaway with the crown hooks and journal. Well, the shop where I purchased those items also had this:
Pretty, isn’t it? It costs $24.00. It looks a little like a prayer candle, doesn’t it? With some scrapbook paper, glitter and ribbon. A prayer candle costs $1.00 at the dollar store. I have scrapbook paper. I have some glitter. I have ribbon. Can you see where I’m going with this?
I went to the Dollar Tree and bought the tall prayer candle. I went to my craft closet and pulled out some scrapbook papers, Mod Podge, ribbon, tags and glitter.
I cut the paper I chose to size and then Mod Podged it onto the candle ~ leaving some of the glass at the top exposed. I rolled it on with the candle on its side, and applied the Mod Podge to the back of the paper and the glass. I did not put Mod Podge on the top of the paper.
I added some stickers I had, a little bit of glitter in certain spots, and glued a piece of ribbon around the top of the paper.
Done! I made my own for about $3.00!
I’m putting together some items as a donation for a local school’s fashion show/auction and I think the pink candle will be one of the items. I’m also doing an altered mini-composition book to match.
These mini-composition books were 4 for $1.00 at Dollar Tree. I’m planning on covering the blue geometric design one next with the paper and fleur de lys tag you see here.
Throw in another item or two and I think this would make a nice gift set!
