I love recycling wine bottles and have been know to rescue them out of other people's trash! I'm sharing with you how to create the look of melted candle wax over a wintry scene using hot glue, mod podge, and a paper napkin. I think the end results are quite lovely! The warm, decorative design adds a whole lot of charm to anyone's décor during the winter months!
All items for this project are available at the Dollar Tree except the Mod Podge. This is an easy project to add an Autumn focal point to your home that doesn't look 'homemade'. Making several of these candles would be perfect as a centerpiece for your Fall table. Happy Creating everyone!
So Fall/Autumn and Winter are my favorite time of year, and so I love to decorate for these 2 seasons, all though I never seem to have enough to decorate with! A few years ago we move out of one house into another, and I didn’t realize until months later that I left my Tun with ALL my Fall decor, so I’m starting from scratc.
Painting fabric furniture is so much fun and way easier than reupholstering… not to mention less expensive. This project started as a conversation with a local hairdresser. We both have a love for color and pretty things. What hairdresser doesn’t love color, right? Well, we immediately knew after a brief conversation that this was going to happen. We made a few plans and the hunt was on. It didn’t take her long to find the perfect sofa for the project. Read on…

We just finished up our reclaimed barn wood farmhouse table and had some left over chunks of the wood slab. I wanted to be able to use every last bit so I decided to make rustic reclaimed barn wood tea light candle holders. That description is quite a mouth full, I apologize for that.
If you are in the mood for creating an easy Halloween decoration on a budget, here’s one great idea that might be useful for you!
It started with a few rocks, then a tea candle has been added, and I got the funniest Halloween candle holder for free.
I like to use mason jars to hold citronella tea light candles at our outdoor seating area. It helps to keep the mosquitos away and looks decorative at the same time. I just fill the bottom of the jars with small pebbles or beach sand, drop in a candle and wrap some twine around the neck of the jar.
I'm excited to share with you how I transformed plain, drab, stained brass candlesticks I found at Goodwill into fabulous, chic, crystal enhanced accessories! You often see so many dull and dirty brass items at thrift stores and most times you don't really pay attention and casually pass them by. But when I came across these candlesticks hiding in the back of some others, I was quickly drawn to their height. I also loved the clean lines of this set and the cost - $6.00! What a bargain!
Hey Loves! So I decided to take on the Dollar Store Challenge. I love a challenge. Check out these Anthropologie inspired Home Decor DIY's that are perfect for the fall. I purchased all items from my local Dollar Tree Store.
I love recycling items to create craft projects! I recently attended a community cookout and managed to collect lots and lots of empty beer and soda cans. It's a great way to repurpose discarded or unwanted items into creating some of my crafting ideas. I've had a couple of projects swirling around in my thoughts - one of which is a candleholder. A candle holder that looks chic and modern but so easy to make! And the best part - you can use it indoors or out!
When I think of summer, I think of entertaining on my deck or patio. I just love eating outside in the warm breeze, don't you? One thing I dislike about it though, are all of those pesky mosquitoes buzzing around ruining my lovely evening! It was time to do something about it! These citronella candles do the trick and keep the pests away, while looking pretty too! These were a blast to create, so be sure to have fun with the process.
Got any pickle jars lying around? Don't toss them before you see these great DIY's!To begin, take off the label by soaking the pickle jar in a sink full of warm water & add 1 cup of vinegar. After the labels are off wash with dish soap to make sure the jar is clean.
This project was only around $6 for the supplies needed. I posted an inspiration picture in Discussions/Ask Question (A new feature at Hometalk, I highly recommend that you check it out!) It was of a vase or candle holder that was in a vacation rental that we were at 4 years ago. I have always intended to try to recreate a version of it but never got around to it. I really wanted to give it a try but wasn't sure how to go about it. It was simply made with beads but it was so pretty and unique. I loved it! I posted the picture for inspiration in that forum to the whole Hometalk community and the next thing I knew, I was super motivated to make it and I was being encouraged by other Hometalkers.
