Well you all know how much I LOVE a cheap and easy, crafty project -- and that's JUST what today is. I saw this idea at a store somewhere -- but of course, I can't remember where. Oh well -- just know it's not my idea. :)
I found this set of candlesticks at the thrift store for $2.99 each:
I cleaned them off, took my trusty can of spray paint and gave them a few shiny coats. :) I used the same paint here as I did on my night table lamps. I made it super easy on myself and painted the candlesticks and lamps at the same time. Not that I don't LOVE to spray paint -- but the easier the better, right!? :)
The second step was to take some fall floral leaves and put them in the candle holder. I used some that I happened to find at the thrift store for $.99 -- but you KNOW the Dollar Store has TONS of cute fall leaves, too -- they're all over the place!
I wrapped several ends together and bound them with a rubber-band. Then I put them into the candle holder and put little pieces of newspaper around them to hold the leaves in place in the candle holder.
What do you think??? I just can't say no to a quick and inexpensive project -- so I think they're pretty cute. :)
