Ordinary Candle Holder to Sparkly Christmas Candle Holder

Everyone who knows me knows I'm a big Christmas fan, and if I can turn an ordinary everyday item into a Christmas decoration, I will!

Here is a large glass candle holder, very nice and elegant.......but Christmas is coming and it can't just sit there being all elegant and having no reference to the festive season can it! 
So I decided to use my gorgeous Heartfelt Creations bauble stamps, from Creative Expressions to add some Christmas cheer to my candle holder.


What a transformation! Not ordinary any more.


I stamped the candle too.


It looks so pretty with the heat embossed baubles around the glass.
I used a mixture of white and gold embossing powder.


I'm really pleased with how this has been transformed. It's unique and I made it.
I love that feeling.
Make something that makes you happy today.
Bye for now
