CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Country Living Inspired Filament Bulb CandlesI have another fun, easy and inexpensive project for you…my Country Living inspired filament bulb candles! As soon as I saw them in the March issue, I knew I was going to make them!

Ozzie Our CEO and co-host for today, Miss Ozzie, says that if they look sort of familiar…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Aged Paper Candle Wraps …it’s because I recently used the same technique in my frenchy  aged paper candle wraps. You will find a super-easy tutorial for how to age paper and the free graphics to make your own numbered candles here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Country Living Inspired Filament Bulb CandlesHere’s how I made the filament bulb candles:
  • First, I downloaded the graphics from Country Living by clicking here. I cropped and saved them individually and printed them at 5x7 size running lengthwise using Photoscape. 
  • Next, I followed the steps on my tutorial for aging paper to give them a vintage look.

I am excited about my new method using candle wraps instead of permanently attaching my graphics to them.
