I am probably the last person to work with these candles, but when I took a trip to my local Kmart recently, I found these on clearance for $1 each. The place mat came from Publix and was $1.19. You first saw these two finds in this post last week.
Please excuse the fact that I didn't take 'during' pictures, but here are the final products.
I cut the burlap place mat to fit one of the larger candles. I wasn't sure how much I would get out of it, but surprisingly enough I ended up doing both tall ones and a small Dollar Tree candle I had sitting on my kitchen counter. A good example how nothing is safe around my house! After I clued the burlap on all three, I got out my embellishments and just came up with something, deciding on black (and white) ribbon on two of them, and aqua beads on the third one. I love how they turned out.
Thanks for stopping in and please leave me a comment.
