Re-do your candles Tutorial

So..are you like me and really really dislike the price of candles? I purchased these rust colored ones a long time ago and they used to match my decor but now that I have completely changed my living room they sort of stick out like a sore thumb.

So what should I do with them?
I mean these 3 little candles cost me at least 10 bucks and I didn't want to have to run out and purchase new ones when I had these perfectly good ones just lying around.
Plus I have a bunch of other things that I want to spend the $10 on...perhaps some new shoes or ice cream...
Anyway here is my solution.

All I did was tape some pretty paper to the candle.

Wrap the paper around the candle and then tape.

As my cool cutter is lost I just trimmed the bottom up with some scissors.

Then I traced the bottom of the candle and cut out a circle for the top, poked a hole in the middle for the wick and VOILA!

The new cost of these cute candle was .59. I got the paper at Hobby Lobby for half price. :)

So I love this blog. I love that I actually have followers. I love that even though I have neglected it for a month I still have people checking in. I am not gonna make any promises that I will be a better blogger but I will try to do an update at least once a week. That will be my goal. I just have a ton of things going right now that HAVE to be done and this is just not number one priority right now.
Me and the hubs have been working on a bunch of projects though so it will be fun to show them off.
Look for a new blog post sometime in the next week with our big summer project :)
