Quick & Easy DIY Candle Gift

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

This year was my sister's first Mother's day being a mom! Her little sweetpea is 6 weeks old so I wanted to get her something to celebrate the day - even though she is not MY mom! 

Then I had the idea to customize something just for her  and thought a candle would be perfect. I picked up a sweet smelling one from Target [of course] - I really like their candles because the labels tend to peel off easily and in one piece with out any extra help. I would recommend testing a corner in the store to be safe - that way you don't have to use goo gone or hot water on a brand new candle.

I cleaned the surface with alcohol and created a template on my Silhouette Machine:


Then printed out with vinyl and applied it to my candle:


I used the Martha Stewart Glass Etching Cream that I used here. When it was ready I wiped it off annnnnnnd:


I was super happy with it and my sister LOVED! This would make a great gift for any occasion and cost less than $10!




Gold Leaf Flower Pots!

Thursday, May 9, 2013

In case you haven't noticed I am OBSESSED with gold - honestly its seems to be everywhere right now in our house and when I saw these amazing gold leaf terra cotta pots on this website I knew I needed to make them. She did an amazing job right?!!

Terra cotta pots are relatively inexpensive so I bought like a dozen of them, one pack of gold leaf foils and then the adhesive. I had enough to make all of my pots and even some left over!
The adhesive is called "Size" which was slightly confusing when I was buying it. 

Then I put a layer using a foam brush on the pot - The instructions say to wait until the size is dry - it becomes tacky however the terra cotta is so porous I applied the gold leaf instantly:

I did a few here and there until:

And then filled them with succulents (the only thing that seems to thrive under my care)

All done! 

They are all mis matched and the foil is in random places on a few but they add a nice little sparkle to our front patio!
