How To Make A Clementine Candle (Awesome!) Please Share This Page: Google + stumbleupon tumblr reddit How To Make A Clementine Candle (Awesome!) We found a great video by Apartment Therapy TV which you are sure to love! Clementines are a variety of a mandarin orange. A candle works by vaporizing the wax/oil and drawing it up the wick where it burns. After cutting, removing the fruit of the clementine, the white part is exposed. You can make this candle with other citrus fruits but clementines are ideally better because they are much easier to peel. You can also use these candles as decorations: You can beautify your house with these during Hallowe’en, the Christmas season or at any other time. If all else fails, you can also “cheat” by using tealights. Try making your own clementine candle at home and impress your friends with it! One last thing – please be VERY SAFE and diligently follow guidelines for candle safety. Okay, here is the video:

miss flibbertigibbet: Spoon Lamp Today I wanted to show you one of the decorations I’m doing for the upcoming art show my church is hosting. I’ve been working with art shows for several years and they are such fun! I can think out of the box for fellow artists and really do something funky if I want to. I saw a lamp made from plastic spoons last year on Pinterest. I didn’t belong to Pinterest at the time so I just copied the picture and didn’t worry about where it came from. So, I can’t tell you where the original is located. You’ll need: A large plastic jug A LOT of plastic spoons (I bought a pack of 600 at Costco and I used more) Something to cut the handles off the spoons ( I used garden clippers) A pendant light kit Hot glue Here’s the finished product: So, let’s begin. These run about $5. First, eat the cheese balls…….. Wash out the jug and remove the label….I didn’t worry about getting all the sticky residue off but I didn’t want the label seen when people were looking up at the lamp. Here’s a couple layers done.
Bedroom Makeover: Reading Lamps Guest Bedroom Makeover Day 8: Reading Lamps **Note: This is part of a 12-step bedroom makeover series. Find the previous steps at the bottom of this post.** (channel your inner Osmond before singing) I'm a little bit viiiiintage...I'm a little in-dus-tri-alllllll... I've been loving a slick industrial vibe mixed into highly textural organic elements lately. (On a totally unrelated note...apparently we can't go three meals without doing the dishes around here. It should come as no surprise, then, that I went with this same look for reading lamps in the guest bedroom: I bought two $7 clamp lamps from Lowe's, taped over the electrical inside, spray painted the inner side gold and the outer side blue. Apparently these babies can "only" handle 200W bulbs. I'm pretty happy with them...and the <$20 total price tag, of course. And also? Check out the previous steps to this bedroom makeover: Featured!
