Crowns, Jewels and Sheet Music


I bought more of these tall candles from the grocery store that I decorated for Christmas. I could not pass up this $1.50 candle sale! This time I copied my vintage sheet music onto cardstock and then printed crown clipart, from The Graphics Fairy, over the music. I used modge podge to wrap the paper around the candles and then added glitter paint to accent the crown details.



I used a copy of this vintage print for another candle. I altered it by adding a mini crown and lettering.




The last two candles were the ones I had already covered in brown, vintage sheet music for Christmas. I took off the Christmas greens and added burlap and vintage, pearl earrings to dress them up.

I love what you did! The crown on the baby is too cute. Thank you for the sweet comments on my blog and the cookbook suggestion. I'm going to look for it right now. Gluten/Sugar free is the way to go!
