Makeover Candle Gift Project - Bubbly Funk DT

Happy Thursday!

I hope you're all keeping snug and warm.  I'm definitely feeling the cold but my Mum thinks I may have an iron deficiency as she claims it's not that cold!!!!  

I'm on the Bubbly Funk blog today with a makeover project using the November Bubbly Funk Through The Letterbox.  I adore candles and use them a great deal at home as I like both the scent and the atmosphere they create.

I recently bought a few candles which smell divine but don't look very interesting so I decided to give one a makeover as a gift for a friend. 

For the lid, I die cut a white glitter base and added skeleton leaves and chipboard hearts from the box.  I used a couple of poinsettia from my stash and glittered the tips.  I threaded twine through the poinsettia and a white bell, adding beads to the bottom.

For the side of the tin I used the striped material from the box.  I found I could manipulate it so well as it didn't crease and gave a lovely clean look.  I adhered it with double sided tape and used that for the pom pom ribbon as well.

I hope you've enjoyed my project.  You'll find more information and inspiration on the Bubbly Funk page HERE where you can also purchase your November Through The Letterbox.

I may see you again tomorrow but it all depends if I get my project completed - it's been a mad week so far and it's not over yet!


Products Used:
Material, Pom Pom Ribbon, Skeleton Leaves, White Bell and Beads from the Bubbly Funk November Through The Letterbox
Everything else from my stash
