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.

This video explains how to make all three projects and is very easy to follow! Enjoy! :-)
Remove candle wicks with a tweezer from candles.
Glue candle wicks to wooden bowl with glue gun.
Cut candle up and put into a glass measuring cup.
Melt candle wax in a larger pot of water while inside glass measuring cup.
Pour melted wax into the wooden bowl that you glued the wicks in. Allow to solidify and then you can use.
Glue giraffes to tall candle sticks with glue gun.
Spray with gold spray paint and you're done.
Remove sticker labels from candles.
Flip candles upside down. Spray paint 1 candle gold and spray paint the other white.
Fill a bowl or container you don't mind getting messed up and fill it with water. Take your white nail polish and add a few drops on top of the water and swirl it around to create a marble effect.
Dip the gold spray painted candle in the marbled water to cover all sides. Allow to dry and the candle is all done.

    When you poured hot wax into the wooden bowl , how did get the wicks to stay put ? You don't mention anchoring them at the top with anything and its been my experience that pouring hot wax over hot glue melts the hot glue and sends the wick tabs floating around the container .
