diy candle holders

Pin It
can you guess what these beauties are made of?  prize pat on the back for whoever can!  that’s right, you guessed it….clay pigeons!  you know, the little things that fly through the air right after you yell, “pull!”  those.  who woulda thought? 

you can tell by looking that they’re pretty self-explanatory.  flip the pigeons over and glue them together, repeat till you hit your desired height.  i had a little mishap with some of the glue.  i first attempted liquid nails and that didn’t work a bit, so i switched to epoxy and it worked like a charm!  mishap with the paint, too.  i am not a fan of spray painting—i usually leave that to katie.  but i was flying solo on this one, so i bought some krylon white (which i usually like) and it came out yellow no matter how much i shook it. sooo, i started over with white craft paint and then went over that with a clear satin finish paint to give it some shine.  that seemed to do the trick.  but if you are a fabulous spray painter, i would suggest that since  it’s so much quicker! 

then, decorate how you like and admire your handiwork! J  happy fall, y’all! 

p.s.- these will be in our etsy store, soon!
