Dollar Store Candlestick

What do you do when a challenge is presented to you? Well, if you are like me you take it. A blogger friend came up with this idea to see what we can make with items from the dollar store.

Dollar Store candlesticks

I already had a couple of these candle sticks so all I had to do was figure out what I wanted to do with them.

Candlesticks 1I figured if I was using dollar store candlesticks then I would see what else I could use from the dollar store for the project. I ended up leaving with a bag of rocks and a bag of moss. REALLY? Now what? Out of frustration I headed to my favorite craft store Hobby Lobby to see if an idea would pop in my head. Well, it just so happens I had an idea before I got there. I needed two glass candle holders which happen to be 50% off so they were only a couple dollars a piece. Now I have everything I need…perfect!

Candlestick projectsI glued the glass candle holders on to the top of the candlesticks and let dry for 24 hrs.

Candlestick CraftsI wrapped a little twine around the candlestick and put some rocks in the bottom of the candlestick. I had a small Daisy plant I got for like $4.99 at the local grocery store so I just split it in two. I put it in the candle holder and topped it with some moss. And, for a finishing touch I just tied a piece of twine around the candle holder. 

And, wallah…

Craft with CandlesticksOnce you water them the water runs to the rocks and the plant will drink up when it’s thirsty. I think it’s a perfect gift to make for anyone that won’t break the bank.
