Wedding Decorations, Candles

I thought I would share something I worked on this week for a friend's wedding.  This one is for you
M.  I started with a trip to the Dollar store and bought them out of these.


Then just added this.



And ended up with these.



A whole table full of these.



At the reception they will look like this.




I think they are just lovely for and equally lovely couple.  I will share more in the weeks to come.

Even though I made these for a wedding, just think of what a pretty Valentine's Decoration they would make.  The paper is just hot glued on and could be removed and the next holiday's paper could be put on, the options are endless.

Sit Relax and Read

They are absolutely adorable! I have seen those exact candles at the Dollar Store and said to myself that I know there's some kind of craft I could do with them, but couldn't think of anything at the time. But now.....their gonna look great in my bedroom all decorated up for Valentine's Day! Thanks for the idea!

What a GREAT idea! At my wedding my mom and I did a lot of the work ourselves...I think it makes it more of "your own" when friends and family create for your special day! Thanks for sharing!

How perfect! A custom look without a custom price. I have a friend that does a lot of weddings and she'll love this. I can see it for other celebrations too. Great idea! Lisa~ www.livingmybestlifeii-lisa.blogspot.com

Kalleen said...

thank you, thank you. You have solved my problem. I have these same hurricane lamps in my windows and my candles have all melted in the sun. They look really pathetic, but I didn't know what to do. I let you know how they turn out when I fix them.
