Dollar Tree Crafts


I have been seeing so many Pinterest and Facebook sites about Dollar Tree crafts. Over the next week, I am going to post some of the ones that I am going to try. One that I saw was a candle holder made with Dollar Tree items. So I went and bought a little vase and a candle stick and short candle. The only "tools" I needed were my glue gun.


First thing I did was run a thick bead of glue around the flat top of the candlestick and then I sat the vase centered on top of the candlestick...and forgot to take a picture of that step, but you get my drift.


I had some ribbon and beads that are thought were very feminine so I was trying to figure how to incorporate them.


I just wrapped the beads willy nilly around the candle (no glue) and just sat it down inside the vase and let the beads land how they wanted. I tied the ribbon around the candlestick in a bow and ...Wah Lah! A new candle holder.


I decided to put it somewhere with my favorite pink tea cup. 


I tried it in two different places. I would like your opinion. Do I set it in this display (#1)?


Or this display (#2)? 


I think I like #2 the best but would love your input. Either way, I am just thrilled with my little Dollar Tree Craft that was a total of $3.00 for a fun and fast craft to make.
