I most certainly have a love of burlap. It is such a versatile fabric with great texture and a wonderful earthiness to it. After creating my burlap bulletin board found here, I was lucky enough to find myself with some leftovers. I have been dying to try my hands at making a burlap wreath but while decorating for fall I found myself with a very bare glass candle holder. Light bulb went off. Hmm, where’s all that burlap? In case your wondering where I am going with this let me fill you in before the suspense gets to you! I wanted to cover that boring old holder with burlap. To be completely honest it’s not a boring old candle holder, it’s actually rather pretty and once housed the most amazing scented candle for the Christmas holiday and I cannot wait to have it back in my place! Here is what it looked like before the makeover.
Then I took my materials outside since my plan was to use spray adhesive and didn’t want the fumes inside. Before spraying I realized that I needed to flip the glass over because the adhesive might get inside and that wouldn’t be good. I knew it wouldn’t be a big deal if I got glue on the bottom especially since it’s glass and I knew I would be able to probably peel it off quicker an if it were on the inside.
As you can see the bottom was a bit longer so I tried to roll it over to the bottom. I wasn’t completely satisfied with this so I just grabbed my scissors and pressed them against the bottom and cut it. Sorry no picture. It worked out totally fine. When I brought it back inside I wanted to see how it looked lit but I was a bit nervous only because the spray adhesive screams EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE but I knew it was dry and so I took a chance just for a photo op but for the future I may just buy those battery operated candle tea lights.
