Embellished Wood Candlesticks


We moved into a new house last year, and I have been eager to make it feel like home.  There is only so much painting and stenciling one can do at first, so in the meantime I am crafting little projects to give our space my touch.  I fell in love with these wood candlesticks and decided they would be a nice way to add some interest to my master bathroom.

These candlesticks are so nicely made that I didn't have to sand or prime them.   Two coats of spray paint covered them nicely!


On the left, I simply tied a key charm on with some crinkled seam binding.

In the center, I made a flower topiary, this time by gluing fabric flowers on (see my other tutorial for more details).

To the right, I made a tulle flower and glued a resin cabochon to the center.


 I spraypainted a mini birdcage to match and then glued it on with E6000.  
On the left I adhered some lace to the bottom.
  

 In the center and left I made two tulle "poofs" and tied them on.


On the right, I made a tulle bow and glued a paper flower to the center.

This is a quick project that helps make a big impact.  They would also make lovely centerpieces.  
What else could you do with them?

I hope I've inspired you to try your hand at a little home decorating!
