I was really excited about participating in Oct 2013 Project A Day, an event on facebook. I got right up and got busy on my project.
For today's project I decided on an altered candle. I am redoing the main little bathroom and I decided to make some decor. I have had this beat up candle literally for years. It needed to go in the trash bin, or get a much needed makeover. Guess the makeover won out. I think it turned out super cute.
Here is a step by step
It started out as a green candle
Since it is for decoration only and I have
no intentions of burning it, I gave it a
couple coats of grey acrylic paint.
I picked out a few papers from my
stash that fits into my color scheme.
I wrapped them around the candle and glued
the edges together. Then added some canvas
twine to finish it off. I also painted the brass
candle holder white so it would fit in better.
Thanks for stopping by!
