Rustic Contemporary Candles

I've been checking out lots of blogs lately. Many of them have great ideas on how to get the looks you like for less. Well I was so inspired that I happened upon my own project! I was at the Dollar Tree picking up a few things and I came across this candles:


Now I thought...those are kind of nice, and only $1! So I bought 2. Then I started thinking...they are a little plain...what could I do to them to spruce them up? Well I went into my craft room and pulled out a few supplies. Twine/Hemp, Elmer's glue, and some scissors.


I took the glue and spread a light coat over the outside of the glass about 1 inch at a time, and wrapped the twine around and around. I ended just below the top of the wax.



I think the finished product looks very neat, and only took maybe 30 minutes and $2! (I already had the twine & glue)
