Howdy ya' ll!!! Yes, it has been a while since I've posted any thing. I have just not really felt up to the task. So, much is going on but, God is in control. I made these gorgeous, if I may say so myself gold and silver candle holders...I thought how could I not share this project.
# (Yahweh) The Lord is my Shepard I shall not want.
I actually created these candle holders for my niece's wedding and I was wondering what to do with them. Since I am doing some Winter Decor at my house...I decided to integrate these candle holders into the decor. However, I didn't want them to be silver so I took them up a notch.
This is how they looked before. Also, you can find out here how I actually made them with things from the Dollar Tree.
I decided that I wanted them gold. So, this is what I did. I took some mod podge and a foam brush and applied the mod podge to the top part of the candle holder. And then I covered it with gold glitter...shaking of the excess. I decided to keep the center of the candle holder silver...which is the base. But then to add more visual interest I decided to to add gold to the foot of the base. I did this by doing the same process. Also, to prevent the glitter from falling every where... after it has dried you can apply a coat of mod podge over your glitter. This will seal it.
These can be used in your home as a center piece on your dining table or in a wedding
They were really inexpensive to create. I like the three displayed at various heights. It cost less than 15.00 to create all three.
I do hope that this project inspires you to create your own glamorous candle holders for a fraction of the cost.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
