Merry Christmas to you all! If you're like me, Christmas is fast approaching and I'm just getting farther behind the closer it gets! It's definitely crunch time around here. So in light of that, I needed a really quick project that looked festive and above all, had to use things I already had around the house. No time to run to the store, so use what I have. So last night, I'm thinking, I know have some candles and candles always look nice around the holidays, so how can I dress them up a bit? This is what I came up with and these are the supplies I used.
Sparkling Snowflakes set and matching Snowflakes Dies. I also used a piece of white vellum, Brilliance moonlight white ink, an empty 1 liter soda bottle and a recycled silver card board box. Along the way, I added some flat bottom glass marbles and the acrylic jar they came in and a small stack of screw top jars that usually hold beads.
I attached 3 of the snowflakes together with a red rhinestone brad and used this hold the band together for the top of my candle. I slid this onto the top of my candle holder.
I placed more silver snowflakes inside the back of the band around the top. And this what all my little candles look like now. I'm thinking the jars would also look good with glitter or colored sand or even Prima flowers in them. They could even be changed out for different occasions or holidays.
