Inspiration struck when I came across these cinnamon stick firecrackers. After perusing my craft shed, I came up with three unfinished candlesticks I had picked up at the craft store and I was on my way with some paint, sandpaper, and dark walnut stain! Then I added some jute for the wicks that my friend, Amy, let me borrow (thanks, Amy!).
As you can see by the color of the blue paint above and the color below, I squirted some black paint in my blue because it was way too rainbow bright for what I had in mind.
It wasn’t until after I painted and got everything stained that I realized I could pop those metal things out in the candles, lol =/
Finished pieces before sanding and staining…
Annnddd after sanding and staining and hot gluing the wicks in =) Oh and when you can’t find your itty bitty paint brush to paint stars…use a toothpick!
Hope y’all like them as much as I do! Now I just need to drag out all my other summer décor and actually get it put up :/
Until next time!
