Hey Y’all! Real quick question— Have you noticed how much stripe taper candles cost.. Geez louise… look here and here.. and World Market has them on sale for $3.00 but that’s for a pair. Well, remember the yard sale I went to a couple weeks ago .. I also found 3 boxes of tapered evening candles for $0.50 a box with 5 candles in each box.
You know I snagged all of them. I knew exactly what I wanted to do .. Stripe them out!! It was so quick and easy and I love how it gave them a bit more elegance.
All I did was tape them up and gave a quick spray of metallic gold. Let dry and now I have a pair of striped gold candles. I saved a few dollars by getting vintage candles from the yard sale and doing it myself. The best part is I’ve got several candles to make different colors and styles with at a fraction of the cost.
So the next time you’re at a yard sale, a thrift store or even Goodwill.. get those candles! Every little bit savings counts.
Another thrifty idea by your Urvintage Girl! Tah-tah!!
