Easy as 1, 2, 3

Remember my comment about my obsession with candles?  Well here it is! I needed some Thanksgiving decor for my home, so I thought why not decorate the plain candles I already have?  (instead of spending 4 or 5 bucks on a decor candle.)
  •  First, choose some plan candles you have around the house.  If you don't have any go to Dollar Tree or Walmart (only $1 to $2 each). 
  • Second, find free Clip Art online.  Print, and cut! I painted my turkey brown to give it a silhouette look.  I also used my mom's Cricut for the Christmas cut outs.  That is definitely the best option if available.


  • Third, put a little Mod Podge on the candle and then stick your image on.  Add a bit more Mod Podge on top for a protected finish!




  • Final product: A fun decoration for your home, or a gift for a loved one!  You decide!



P.S.  I found the candle holders at the Dollar Tree.  I needed some coasters and these work perfect!  I found some Clip Art leaves, added a little Mod Podge and Waaa Laaa!  (My dad thought they were real leaves!)
