Wow, has it really been over a week since I last posted?! Between the hustle and bustle of the holidays and the fact I have my first cold of the season, I haven't been able to get much crafting done. Well, I did have time to stop by the Dollar Store earlier this week...
And I did find a little time between bouts of rain to give these Dollar Store candle holders a little Mercury glass makeover.
This was almost an epic fail.
You see, once I gave each holder a few coats of Krylon's Looking Glass spray paint, it started to rain. Except I didn't realize it was raining and left my garage door open where the holders were drying.
So the paint got wet and took forever to dry. It got a little gloppy too and then started peeling. UGH! I didn't panic and let the paint completely dry overnight (in a closed garage!). When I came out the next day, I was able to fix most of it.
Phew - that was a close one! I added some tea-stained seam binding to each holder and called it a day.
