I found several at stores priced from $10 to $15, but since I already had the jute stringy stuff most of the ones I liked were wrapped with I just purchased a plain glass container and put the string on myself.,
There are were many choices available at my regular discount haunts like Marshalls and Ross but I liked this plain one.
|I did need one other supply - scissors! Which I forgot about until time to cut the string. |
The plastic bag contains my last two citronella tea candles.
Then I just wrapped it around until I was happy with the number of layers and then glued the other end to cover where I started so it was all nice and neat.
Then I placed the candles, sand and shells inside and took it out by the pool for a photo shoot.
I think this will stay lit even when the wind blows and it is SO much more attractive, plus I only spend $4 for the glass container. Everything else I already had around the house.
While I had out the jute string, hot glue and shells I made little tassels for these candles to complete my "to do" list on the beachy decorationg. Just a drop of glue on each shell to attached them to the jute.
These gold candlesticks have been around my house FORVER and I love 'em, but was getting kinda tired of the gold. So while I was working on the beachy theme I decided to give these a dry brush of toasted marshallow chalk paint leftover from my French desk. Sweet!
We're finally going to move forward with the side yard project - oh yippee! Poor SuperDave (and poor me) -
Much Love & Laughter,
