So its nearly Mother's Day.... but its not too late to make your Mama something divine to show her how much you love and appreciate her! I made these candle holders yesterday, they are easy and cost very little.... but they pop and are the perfect gift for the perfect Mum!
You will need an assortment of wooden feet for furniture. I got mine at Bunnings.... but Im pretty sure you could get them at most hardware stores..... these ones were predrilled so there was no question about where to stick the candle! Grab some paint, I used 'Annie Sloan Chalk Paint' which I had bought on line for a previous project. It covers most surfaces beautifully and comes in some great colours... not time to wait for delivery you could use any water based paint you have around the house... not too sure about using acrylic paints... but you could give it a go. Don't forget the paint brushes, masking tape and wood glue.
The kind of wooden furniture feet you picked up will help you work out how best to paint them... just have fun with it.
There is no right or wrong!
Just fun and experimentation......
When you're done and the paint has dried, its time to start gluing your 'feet' together. Now you don't have to do this of course, but really liked the way mine looked stacked.
And voila! Unique, handmade candle holders. A beautiful centre piece and a gorgeous gift for someone special.
Some other gorgeous gift ides include a handmade collage... this one is from all my mums old photos, better than keeping them hidden in an album, on display for all to see..... and have a giggle at! And don't forget the old classic....flowers of course.
