This year my friend Debbie and I are exchanging gifts! We have a $20 limit ... and I love a challenge.
I found these really nice candle holders at Hobby Lobby. The color was off though. For me, LOVE them, but for Debbie - I didn't love them. I actually think Debbie would have liked them a lot, but I wanted to personalize them for her .. I loved the bones of them, but her decor is much more feminine. I have a lot of dark furniture - hers is lighter and I was thinking a cream color, maybe some gold (her curtains have gold) would be good. SO ... I bought these and REVAMP!
Cute, but not quite THERE - so I took some gold paint and antiqued it a little. I painted all the little nooks and crannies and then wiped it off with a paper towel. It left JUST enough ... so cute. I loved how they turned out! Oh and I thought the soft green candles would be great too.
A little up close action of the gold:
Merry Christmas, Debbie!
