By Jenny Ryan Many times when I’m at the grocery or drug store, I can’t resist throwing a few scented votive candles in my cart. When I’m ready to burn them, it’s easy enough to sit one on a cute little vintage china saucer, but I recently decided to try and find a fancier display solution for them. I also wanted the project to be inexpensive, and the materials used to be things I already had on hand. I was inspired by memories of making faux-stained glass in elementary school and came up with these fun little glass votive holders. This project is quick and easy, and a great way to whip up custom party décor on the cheap. Materials
Weekend Project: A Candelabra Made From Old Bottles One of the many things I loved about working with art director Susan Wasinger at Natural Home was her knack for finding craft projects that had long ago lost their luster—and giving them a contemporary spin. Remember bottle-cutting? Back in the ‘70s everyone was using those as-seen-on-TV kits to make drinking glasses and vases. Susan took a look at all the beautiful shapes, sizes and colors that bottled mineral water comes in these days and found a way to revive that dying art. Here, she uses capped mineral water bottles to make a lovely candelabra.
This is the most beautiful felt project we’ve seen. Strips of felt are wrapped around each other with hot glue to create this amazing swirled effect. What a great project for a snowed-in weekend and a movie marathon with the family. The kids could even help cut strips and decide on color combination while you operate the hot glue gun. Would you attempt something like this?
