Repurposed Candle Holder: The New Attempted Art Piece.

Happy Saturday!  Weekends are very busy for us now and are packed with house cleaning, catching up on school and papers, and any other projects I come up with.  Harmony has started preschool so being as we have one car on the road, I bring Mark to work.  Our commute is an hour one way.  Needless to say, I am now out of the home five days week and see the car a whole lot more than paper and glue.  This weekend I planned for Harmony and I to do several different fun projects...

I have been on the biggest mission to create something that is bright and artistic to use in my bedroom.  HA!  Bright soooo isn't me.  However, I'm trying to welcome fun and unique elements into my home to liven it up so it isn't so plain and simple.

I have two white, UGLY, votice candle stands that I have never really used because ..well, they're white and they don't match anything in my house.  I took some maroon colored tissue paper and covered the largest votive candle stand that I had with Mod Podge and then several layers of the tissue paper.  I then decided to use some clock scrap booking icons that I purchased for a $1.97 at Target last week for the decorations.  I used my hot glue gun to apply them and then had decided I wasn't too happy with the tissue paper color.  I wanted to spruce it up so I went to my china cabinet where I have a tea set that was given to me from my childhood.  Why not utilize it, right?  It has been sitting around for ten years!  ...So I did.  I love the way it came out..but should have used a different colored tissue paper.  Next time I'll think that part through a little more.  :)  I'm going to use it for jewelry that I take off daily and don't want to just "throw" into my jewelry box.... Thought it would be a perfect piece right on my dresser.
Slot for random items, a ring holder, & earring holder

Love my jewelry box with matching photo of my sister and I.
Have a great weekend!
