Today's Guest I {heart} Naptime

Hey everybody! I’m SO excited to be here today! I’m Jamielyn from I {heart} Nap Time! I’m a hopeless chocolate addict. Sometimes known to eat chocolate chip cookie dough straight from the bowl. I’m a Mama to two chubbies and married to one sexy man. My days are full of chasing my little monkeys, cleaning messes (it’s like shoveling in a snow storm), pinterest, snuggling, avoiding the ever-growing pile of laundry, e-mails, play-dough, crafting and wondering, “Is it nap time yet?!”

Today I’m going to show you how to make some fun candlesticks for under 5 bucks!
Let’s get started shall we?!

  • Two glass candlesticks from the Dollar Tree

  • Glass Jar from Dollar Tree

  • Wooden base (circle) from Hobby Lobby

  • Bead trim from Hobby Lobby

  • Metallic Silver Spray Paint from Home Depot

  • E-6000 or Super Glue from Dollar Tree
1. Attach the two candlesticks with super glue.
2. Glue the base of the candlestick to the wooden base.
3. Glue Jar on top of the candlestick.
4. Tape around edge of jar, to ensure the spray paint only hits the candlestick.
5. Attach bead trim around the base with the glue.
Fill with candy, and enjoy your new décor. Remember… if you paint these in a neutral color, you can use them for every holiday! My kind of décor!
