Recycled Food Cans Turned Patriotic Candle Holders

by - May 24, 2012

We have a busy weekend planned, so I wanted to share some quick patriotic candle holders I made using some food cans.
Even though these aren't quite Memorial Day images, I think they still represent our patriotism.  I printed them out from the Graphics Fairy.  I mod podged each image on and then gave each a quick spray of clear paint.
Once the paint was dry, I added some German glass glitter and some random faux pearl embellishments here and there.  I used some tea-stained seam binding for the one in the middle.

I love that these cost me $0 and I can't wait to light them up over the long holiday weekend.  And of course, I want to thank all of our military members for their dedicated service.  God bless America!
