Pretty Easter Candles

Boy, has Easter snuck up on you?  I think this entire year has snuck up on me.  I have been behind since before Christmas -- sigh.  Easter is next weekend, and, I am just finishing my entryway shelf and red hutch decorations.  I love to use candles.  I think they add such a warmth to your home, and, you can change them out easily. I was really hooked on white ones this past summer, and, I think my obsession with them are going to continue through this summer too.  Here they are, all dressed up for Easter.





The Dollar Tree has the best candles.  I hate to spend more than a dollar on a   seasonal candle.  If it doesn't turn out, it wasn't a lot of money wasted.


I thought these were so pretty.  I love the pastel colors, so, I got them for my DC kids.  I didn't realize that they don't like jelly beans.  Who doesn't like jelly beans?  I didn't want to waste, or eat, them.  I think this was my best option.








I made this one first and didn't like the second row of jelly beans.  So, I tried to make a scallop with an additional jelly bean and didn't like it either.  I think the rose sticker adds enough for me not to throw it away yet - ha ha.



I used a very iridescent pink ribbon to go around the candle, and a flower to add pizazz.



Easy and inexpensive.  Did you alter any candles for Easter?

xoxo
