Rustic Flower Pot Citronella Candleholder
It's officially Spring, and that means Summer is coming and
we'll all be spending more time out-doors. One summertime
problem we all have is those Mosquitos. My daughter, Brooke
happens to be allergic to mosquitos, but sometimes spraying her
down with Off, is a pain, so if she's just going outside to sit, I keep
Citronella Candles handy, to repel the freaky insects.
I came up with this easy project when i wanted to use a clay flower pot but wanted to dress it up a bit.
What you need:
Clay Flower Pot
Jute, Hemp Cord, Twine or colorful cording
Glue Gun with Glue Sticks
Flower Gems, ( they look like marbles)
Simply use your glue gun and press some glue at your starting
point. Then take your Cord and start wrapping. Alternate glue then
wrap , glue then wrap. Etc... Until you get to your finishing point.
Then using the scissors snip off at the end
TIP: The trick to glue gun gluing is to make your connection while the glue is hot, so glue a little then press the cord on.
Use floral beads in the bottom to lift the bottom up to fit and arrange to keep the candle level
I added buttons to mine, using hot glue as well. I found they had
many decorative buttons, butterflies, airplanes, ladybugs etc...
and this project is pretty easy since your just gluing cord, and only took meabout 35 minutes to complete.
Other items you can add cord around are:
Picture frames, lamp shades, clocks, vases, bathroom accessories. You can definitely add a little zing to anything.
Keep it Easy!
