Who doesn’t love a thrifty little makeover? I know I sure do! The other day I was looking around my house looking for a fun project to create. I remembered I had a box full of old candles I never unpacked from our old house. Project? Um, yeah!! I looked through the box and found two white candles and thought to myself… I think I’ve got a ::going gold:: post in my hands!
I had been dying to create some sort of project using gold tacks and knew this would be the easiest project EVER. I took a quick trip to Lowes and bought myself a $2 pack of gold tacks.
So… what your saying is this is a $2 project? Yupp!! It sure is! If you don’t already have the candles on hand, go to your local $1 store and pick up any ole white candle for just $1 or so. So now we’ve moved up to a $3-$4 project. I think we can still handle that;)
At first I was just going to create a gold trim along the bottom of the candle. But then I thought I would get creative with a zig zag pattern on the larger candle.
The process is SO easy. No glue involved whatsoever! All I did was push the thumbtacks into the candle in the pattern I desired. For the zig zag pattern, I used a piece of masking tape as my guide to make sure my pattern would stay even. But other than that, the project is as easy as it appears.
And yet again, Bailey had to make her appearance. I swear, I can’t get through a photo shoot without her somehow popping in. I’m ok with it:) She’s pretty cute.
