Dressing Up a Glass Candle ~

This is a re-post, but I was thinking about teacher gifts and I thought something like this would be fun. I am all about the gift that can be used. And this would be a fun, inexpensive gift they could enjoy - and hey, the kiddos could help too (okay, probably not the hot glue part)!

I picked up this candle for $4.00 on sale the other day - I liked the fragrance, but the candle itself...blah.
 

So I decided to glam it up a bit. I peeled off the sticker - some might find this tedious, but for some reason I find it a tad bit therapeutic.


Here is it all ready to be dressed up.

I grabbed a bit of burlap and this crown that was once a napkin ring (thanks Mom). 
 

I hot glued the burlap on.

Hot glued the crown on and tada...

A $4.00 candle all dressed up!
