Last Minute Xmas Touches From the Dollar Store

by - December 15, 2011

I can't believe there are 10 more days until Christmas!  I made a couple of last minute holiday pieces yesterday.  Both from the Dollar Store:

These itty bitty candles are maybe 2 inches tall.  I printed out the great vintage image from The Graphics Fairy (wallet-size!) and used Mod Podge to glue them to the glass.  After the second coat dried, I simply added two little red rhinestones which I think work perfectly with the vintage image.
This is my last little Dollar Store birdie.  I think I bought every single one when they first came out two years ago.  I gave her a fresh coat of white paint.
Then I used my Mod Podge again to add some German glass glitter all over.  I love how she sparkles!
I have a couple more holiday items planned and then I guess I'll be moving on to, gulp, Valentine's Day!  =)
