Isn't using old stuff to make something new wonderful? I've been having such a fantastic time with all of my Goodwill finds! For this project, I actually had everything already in my home. Even better! The glass candlesticks that I used were picked up off the side of the road, post-garage sale, a few years ago. The mini-vases were my grandma's.
I wanted the candlesticks pinkish white, but didn't have any primer. What to do? Call me the queen of laziness, but I used Mod Podge! I actually mixed some Mod Podge with red paint to create a pink color. I then painted the candlesticks with the Mod Podge mixture and waited for it to dry. This created a very streaky pink with a lot of glass shining through, but it was textured enough that I could spray it with my handy white spray paint. Then I had some pretty sweet light pink candlesticks.
Next, I glued the glass mini-vases to the tops of the candlesticks. I would suggest Epoxy glue for this, as I don't think that a hot glue gun would be strong enough. Let the glue dry and you're done! I filled mine with chocolate Easter eggs, then topped them with Easter egg suckers from The Dollar Tree. What I like about them, though, is that I'll be able to coordinate different fillings with each season or holiday. Cheapest project ever! What do you think?
