Hey ya'll! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! Today starts a new challenge over on the Peachy Blog! This challenge is to create a project using candles! You can wrap them, stamp on them, or anything else your crafty hearts desires hee hee!!
I decided to decorate my candle! I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased a flameless candle (I would hate to burn down my house lol) I also found in the speciality paper some corrugated and burlap paper that I thought was really cool! I started by wrapping both of these around my candle. After I had my paper down I then added my ribbon all the way around. I used the past stamp club set (PKSC-09 September) for the leaves and the pumpkin. I stamped the leaves using CTMH ink in Olive, Cranberry, and Goldrush. I also added some gold stickles to the leaves. The pumpkin was stamped using CTMH ink in Autumn Terracotta! These colors are GORGEOUS and great for fall!! I stamped the Autumn Greetings sentiment (from the club set also) using CTMH ink in Chocolate. The flower shaped jewels were brads but I cut the prongs off the back and then hot glued them on. I also added some dew drops (one also to the center of my bow) The twine is from my bestie :) Here is a little closer up view...
I made it so that when Fall is over and it's take to decorate for Christmas (or any Holiday) I can slip this off and use the candle again! Now I just need to purchase some batteries! I keep forgetting! Now it's your turn to show us what you make using a candle! Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne
