Here is a homemade hurricane candle lamp.

Approximate Time: 45 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. First of all spray paint all pieces and let dry.
  2. Glue the clay pot to the plate.
  3. Then glue the butter tub, and then the saucer.
  4. You can decorate as you like. I painted mine black, but you can paint and decorate any way you like. For instance you could paint white and paint or stencil on Christmas themes or hearts for Valentines Day.

If you have teacups you want to display, maybe mismatched ones you don't want to get rid of, try this. Put a votive candle in them and place them on a stack of books on a bookshelf or an end table.

For homemade candle holders where the base isn't too large, just epoxy an upholstery tack upside down on the top and you have a place to secure your candle.

Start with a 3x3 inch square block of wood, about 1-2 inches deep. Paint it out with light (off-white, cream, eggshell, etc.) colored craft paint. If you have the tools, drill a 2 inch diameter circle or the diameter of a pillar candle you have on hand.

I am making wooden candle pedestals. I am staining them and gluing words on them. But my glue shows through the paper that the words are written on. What can I use to attach them? Could I use the last coat of stain like a glue and stick the papers on right before it dries? Thanks in advance.
