Welcome to the very first Dollar Store Challenge! Barb from The Everyday Home is serving as our hostess with the mostess, and I’m happy to be a co-host of this party along with Tammy from Deja Vue Designs, Christy from Our Southern Home, and Sheila from Plum Doodles.
Each month on the 4th Thursday there will be a different challenge using dollar store items. This month we used glass candleholders. You can see all the projects each month by following the group’s Pinterest Board.
When Barb first issued the challenge to create something with a glass candleholder from a dollar store, I was stumped. But off I went to the Dollar Tree to pick up my supplies without a clear idea in my head until this popped into my head!
Because Valentine’s Day is coming up, I decided to spray paint them red. I used the same Ruby Red that I used to paint magnolia leaves in December. Once they dried, I thought they were a little too red so I added another layer of a darker red that I had.
I suppose you’re wondering about that brownie since I announced that we were on a low carb diet, aren’t you? Well, this brownie is low carb with a secret ingredient. But I’m not quite ready to give you the recipe. It needs a little tweeking.
That’s because I just couldn’t help myself! A little candlelight is needed on Valentine’s Day so I made this using a glass candleholder and a glass pillar candleholder. My friend Marti cut out the heart stencil with her Silhouette machine using contact paper. All I did was put it on the candleholder and then spray painted it. After the paint was dry, I removed the stencil. Thanks Marti!
Speaking of stories, I can’t wait to see all the creative things that have been created with the dollar store candleholders, so let’s get this party started!
