Day 8 : Jazzed Up Candles for Christmas from the Dollar Store

Jazzed Up Candles for Christmas

You don’t have to spend a fortune to have amazing Christmas decor. There are so many items you can make with a few simple dollar store items. These candles couldn’t have been easier to make.  The only supplies I needed were two candles and a package of rhinestone stickers.  Under $4.00 and I have two Christmas theme candles to display and enjoy.

I put the rhinestones on freehand but you could draw or trace the design of your choice and then fill in with some rhinestones.  The great thing about the rhinestones is they come in a variety of colors to match any decor.  I did use a pair of tweezers to put the rhinestones in place. I learned this after I had quite a few rhinestones stuck to my fingers.

These make great neighbor gifts. They are easy to make and take no time at all. Christmas and peppermint seem to go together and when you combine peppermint with white chocolate and Oreos you have a winning combination.  If you give them to the neighbors they are going to love them, I promise.

Pumpkin Ornament from a Mason Jar Lid

I love pumpkins and every year I try to find a new way to repurpose something old and make it into something new, like some form of a pumpkin.
