It has snowed TWICE this week! SO I feel a little weird putting up all my Spring decorations…But I am going to choose to be optimistic and put them up anyway and PRAY that spring really is right around the corner! PLEASE….PRETTY PLEASE!
I found a really cute candle holder centerpiece idea on Pinterest not too long ago, and put it in my St.Patty’s Day Folder to add to my March Mantle décor and I was really proud of myself because I actually did get it up in time for St. Patty’s Day! On the 16th!! Talk about cutting it close. But I liked the candle holders so much and I felt that they were actually quite perfect for a good transition into my Spring decorations so I still get to share them with you today! And I REALLY like how they turned out! Thank you so much Two Twenty One for the awesome idea, I NEVER would have come up with this on my own and it was so EASY and so AFFORDABLE!! (My FAVORITE!!!).
Here is my inspiration from Two Twenty One!
And here is all you need to make it happen!
I found the candlesticks at Value Village ($1.99 each, the hurricane vases were $2.77 at Wal-Mart, our local Dollar Store was out of large vases- totally weird!, and the candles were $2 at Wal-Mart, had the E6000 on hand and the Split Peas were $.88.)
The hardest part of the process was removing all the stickers from the bottoms of the vases (those bad boys DID NOT want to come off! Had to whip out the miracle worker- Goo GONE!)
Next Step was to adhere the candle sticks to the vases with the E6000, Easy Peasy! And then just let it dry! (Seriously, the waiting was hard for me too, I am not the most patient person!)
Once I waited (FOREVER) at least a few hours for the glue to dry, I added my candles, my peas, and a ribbon and it completed my lovely St. Patty’s Day mantle! FOR A WHOLE DAY!!
Today I got to work on my Spring Decorations! And thanks to Jenny and her ADORABLE printables, I had the perfect addition to my Spring Mantle and new hurricane vases!!
Have you decorated for Spring yet? It’s coming! I just know it! It has to right…. RIGHT?!
