If you know me by now, you know that I am obsessed with making any and everything into either a garden planter or a candle holder. I do not know where this infatuation came from but it's fun. I enjoy it. I love flickering candle lights and cozy gardens. There is something so magical about them both, especially on a summer night. Here is just another one of my ideas that suprisingly came out great! You will not believe how easy this one was...
Things you will need:
- Super Sculpey or any baking clay
- Cubcake pan
- Flower cookie cutter about 3.5 or 3.75 inches inches in diameter (I stretched mine out)
- Rolling pin
- Cooking spray
Find a flower cookie cutter big enough to cover the size of the cupcake pan's bottom. About 3 inches in diameter or more. Roll out your clay in to a thin sheet and make your cut outs.
Aren't they adorable?
I then decided to spray all of it...this can get very addictive. The metallic paint looked really, silver! I wanted to spray paint just about everything in our home silver!
Imagine these little things all over your garden for a summer night's party or wedding? They cost next to nothing to make and they are beautiful.
I used regular tea-lights. They fit perfectly.You can get bulk tea-lights from IKEA. Very cheap.
There is room for a bigger/fatter candle...
Please leave me a comment or question.
These literally took about 5 minutes to make-baking time is additional...
