This Little Light of Mine...............

I talked earlier this week about the great candle deal I had gotten at Hobby Lobby. Not only were the candles 90% off, most of them were battery operated.

The only problem was they all had initials on
them that were not the initials I needed.

So my daughter Taylor and I used
some fall materials we had and
redid the candles.
We used:
burlap scraps,
alphabet stamps,
Dollar Tree leaves,
random tags,
left over berries,
leather and string.

                            This is just part of them!
We will use these in
the middle of the tables
at our outdoor
rehearsal dinner.
A closer look at part of them:

The best part about these candles is that everything
is glue-gunned on.
It peels off easily,
and they can be
once again,
to match another

I am linking this to Show and Tell Saturday .Also linking with Metamorphosis Monday. Check out the great ideas.
