Donna’s introduction– I had the pleasure of meeting Shannon Imlay in New York City, and one cannot even begin to describe the feeling of warmth and love that emits from her. The beauty of Shannon is that she is beautiful from the inside out, and I somehow feel that this beauty branches out into the very core of her decorating abilities. What you see from the creations she makes comes from her heart, and you can see the very essence of who she is through her beautiful designs. Enough from me, if you want to find out other ways to achieve the glamour and beauty that is Shannon, I would highly recommend that you follow her at Shannon’s Shanonigins. Thank you, Shannon, for allowing me to share this post!
I wanted to share this fun, easy, and pretty project with you.
I used a square votive from the dollar store and that kept this project under 5 dollars. Don’t you just love when you can make something beautiful and not spend a fortune :)) but look like you did.
The other thing you’ll love about this project is that you can make these very quickly, the longest part is letting them dry:))
Here’s what you’ll need
1). A smooth candle (not shown) or a clean glass container,
2). Spray adhesive, or watered down white craft glue and a brush
3). Metallic veined leaves from your hobby store (this project took 8 leaves).
4). White fine glitter
Place paper on your work surface so the spray adhesive, or glue, won’t get on the counter. Spray, or brush, adhesive on entire surface of the leaf. Immediately place the leaf on your candle or glass surface.
