Today my mom and I went to a rummage sale at a community house. IT WAS PACKED! Not much good quality looking time but we were able to pick up a couple of things! One of the things I picked up was a beautiful little candle holder with a cameo on it, but they were 2 for $0.25. The other candle holders left had the ribbon boarder and cameo pulled off. They really were bad looking but I couldn't just get one so I got one of the scuffed up ones. When I was about to throw it away I suddenly saw great potential in it (ha ha ha). So I went to my mom's ribbon rack, and my embellishment cabinet and here's what I came up with:
- Any candle holder (damaged or not)
- Glue or zots
- OPTIONAL: Embellishments
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
- Pick a ribbon you like or that matches the surroundings that the candle holder will be in. Measure and cut the appropriate amount.
- Apply glue or zots (pre-cut circular sticky dots, that's what I used) ONTO THE RIBBON, not the candle holder, it may run and end up being where you don't want it. Apply the ribbon to the candle holder.
- This is where you can add embellishments. My candle holder already had a "medallion" thing on it so it worked really well for me. I used music notes to back the medallion. I took an old ring that I do not wear any more (it's a mood ring, I hope the candle holder doesn't become mad!) I cut off the part that goes around your finger and used super glue to apply it to the candle holder.
