I love stories with redeeming factor. In scriptwriting, there is a pattern called Ugly Duckling formula where something ugly eventually turned into something beautiful.This is my inspiration in this project.
Me and my hubby love candles! So what can I do with these yucky empty candle containers? I didn't want to throw them away. I've got to do something with it.
First things first, I cleaned the glass of course. Then I looked something I could use for embellishments. Here, I recycled the fabric softener sheets and cut a little piece of burlap
Next, I wrapped the fabric softener sheet around the glass, a cut piece of burlap and a ribbon.
I am aiming for beach-y feel in our living room so I embellished it with small sea shell using glue stick. I love snowflakes! I added snowflake stickers that my mom-in-law gave me. I thought it's timely since I started putting-up my Christmas decorations. After Christmas, I could just take the stickers off and glue some pearls.
It is just a perfect match to my square plate I bought at Khol's. It was on sale for $2 and something, plus we had a coupon and plus, my husband had a balance left in his gift-card. So it was like FREE!
Put a flame-less tea light then voila! Good as new :)
Well, I guess you can also put an ordinary tea candle. It could magnify the smell of the fabric softener sheet.
Here is the other design I made. I used buttons and a lose string from the fabric and tied it in a bow on this one. Looks like all I'm set for valentines?
I hope you enjoyed the project!
