I love chunky, wooden turned candlesticks, but they can be costly. Did you know you can easily DIY them from materials you can find in most hardware stores?
I was in Lowe’s earlier this week when I happened upon these lovely turned table legs.
I purchased the terra cotta saucers from Rural King.
I then used wood glue to glue saucers to one end of the legs, but for the end with the screw? I chose to drill a hole in the saucers.
I learned that you can soak your terra cotta pots overnight in water and drill a hole with a standard drill bit. No masonry bit needed!
I then bolted the saucers on and painted them white with two coats of chalk paint.
I’m happy with how they turned out, but I’m thinking of cutting one of the taller candlesticks down so I’ll have three varying sizes. I love the look of these and I know they’ll look great on our mantle.
This was a DIY project that didn’t cost much, and it was easy and fun to do. I love how cute these candlesticks are as well!
I love Christmas decor at places like Hobby Lobby, but I don’t always love the price.
Did you know you can find lower priced, but still cute decor at discount stores? Some of my favorites are Dollar General and Aldi (yes, the grocery store). Today, I am sharing some of my favorite recent Dollar General finds.
All of the items I am about to show you are $8 or less.
1. Christmas bucket with “leather” handles
How cute would this be on a porch with a faux tree in it? Or maybe on a fire place hearth with birch logs in it.
2. Red plaid table runner
I love this so much- the colors in it are so festive. I’d love to pair this with some green chargers and some Christmas china.
3. Red plaid “Merry Christmas” pillow
This pillow is so pretty and the price is perfect. I bought one for my mud room entry.
4. Tabletop Nativity
This table top nativity has everything I love- warm wood, metal and Jesus. It’s perfect!
5. Faux book stack
Who doesn’t want this cute little “book stack?” I love everything about it.
I hope you enjoyed these Christmas goodies! You may even want to go visit your local DG and see what goodies you can find.
Happy Friday! Can you believe it’s February? This year is going by quickly and I can’t say I’m sad about it. So, to celebrate, here are two free printables for you. This year I’m focused on God’s definition of love and 1 Corinthians 13. I thought I’d base my freebies on that verse.
And here is one with the passage of Scripture from 1 Corinthians 13:8-12.
I hope you love these new free prints! In case you want to print them and frame them, I’d recommend printing no larger than 8×10. I like to use a print shop like Staples Copy and Print for mine. Just right click and save to your device!
