It has officially been over a week since my last post! Boy, time flies and gets busy. I'm sure as you all know, I've been up to no good with all the wedding planning and such.
I am always the type of person who thinks up a project and thinks to myself, "Oh, this will be easy and fast!" But in reality, I start the project and start thinking, "Well, it would look better if I also added this detail...and this detail...and this detail too." So in the end, my simple projects always become complicated. I don't necessarily consider that a bad quality about myself, but that's where my procrastination trait comes in.
|For an example of myself in over my head, here is one of my favorite pictures of my friend Veronica (she blogs over at PassionPinkandPearls.blogspot.com) and I working on a project (and making sad faces). She is an interior design grad, and now I'm still working on my forever degree. Why isn't crafting a major??|
But even after my crazy story, do not fear! Today I'm bringing you a "tid-bit" of a project that in itself is easy-peasy. But you can trust me that it was part of a much larger project.
We will start with tea lights. Not the real ones that have a live flame, but the battery operated ones. I wanted to have some candles at our wedding, but I don't want to worry about the wind blowing them out or how long they would last. Oklahoma is normally pretty windy (unless it is 130 degrees and you wish for even the slightest breeze...) So I went out and bought a bunch of them from the Dollar Tree (did I mention that is my wedding central?) You get a package of 3 for a dollar, so not too expensive. But, in reality the fake candles are kind of cheesy in my opinion.
This is why I bring you my Rustic Tealight Makeover....
This in itself is really easy. All you do is pretty obvious.
Just take twine, and hot glue it all the way around the outside of the candle. And done!
I think they look much less cheapy this way, and certainly more rustic!
Until next time (have a cup of coffee)!
