my favorite do-it-yourself projects start at the dollar store.
regardless of the project I have a 50% success rate. and if my supplies are under $5, my failure guilt is very low.
this project is no exception. but thankfully, it ended with success.
our dining room table was in desperate need of an elegant, fun, fall-inspired centerpiece.
[*editor’s note: [J] has been DIY’ing the heck out of our apartment. I
felt the need to had to step up my game].
3 plain cream candles. 3 cocktail glasses. and $6 bucks later ..I was well on my way to DIY success.
[tip: use unscented candles in your dining room. you want nothing to take away from the smells coming from your scrumptious food].
all you need is mod podge + glitter.
I went with gold to compliment our dining room decor + the upcoming season: autumn.
mix & get to painting your candles.
four coats later ..
while cleaning up the destruction.
completely transformed + upgraded $1 candles.
they’re ready for their pedestal …
and happy tuesday too.
