How To: Dress Up a Candle

Good morning people!!  Hope all is well so far this morning.  Did you sleep okay?  Yes? Well, good for you.  I slept like poo, which is rare for me.  I’m a pretty good sleeper.  Last night was a different story.  First of all, the mind was racing so it was pretty difficult just to doze off.  Don’t you hate it when that happens?  Then, once I finally fell asleep I woke up having to go to the bathroom…twice.  Weird.  Woke up thirsty once…should have suffered through this one for fear of having to go to the bathroom again.  Got an elbow and several kicks from Craig. He must have been doing crossfit in his sleep.  Woke up hot.  Woke up cold.  Then, repeated that cycle.  Oh, and my right hand fell asleep about three times.  What the heck?  Anyway, I’m awake now thanks to the aroma of poop.  Thanks Bella!  Or should I thank Craig for not giving you enough time to do your business outside.  Maybe we should start rushing him when he has to…

Alright, now to the topic of this blog.  I discovered a really easy way to hide that ugly candle jar.  Okay…maybe I didn’t “discover” it.  In fact, half of you have probably done this already.  I haven’t seen it so I’m gonna take the credit so that I can feel super smart and creative.  
All you need is a flower pot, filler, twine/ribbon, and a candle.


Had all of this already so score for a free project!
Alright, follow closely because these are going to be very technical directions.
1.  Put candle in pot.
2.  Surround candle with filler.
3.  Wrap twine around pot and tie in sweet bow.

Tada!  Kinda cute huh?

Get creative with it.  There is a plethora of flower pots.  All different shapes, sizes, and colors.  Switch up the filler.  Use ribbon.  So many different ways to do this.  

You guys have an amazing day!!!

P.S.  Try not to catch anything on fire.  Just a suggestion.

Very cute idea I will have to remember this for Christmas gift ideas.

And by the way I slept like poo too. Restless leg, hot, cold. Missing my gym time from lack of sleep, double poo poo.
