I have seen so many neat ideas in blog land using wooden candlesticks, so I was excited to find two of them, on two separate trips to the Goodwill. At only 25 cents each, I couldn't pass them up! I wish that I had taken a before picture of the one I used for this project, but it was before I started my blog! Anyway, the poor thing was decoupaged with tiny pheasants! I am sure that the cashier wondered why on earth I would want such a silly looking candlestick! Now, I have nothing against pheasants! They are pretty birds, but decoupaged on a candlestick???! I thought that I wouldn't have any trouble removing them with goo gone, but those little pheasants weren't going anywhere! I finally had to sand them off! And it took a lot of sanding!
Graphics Fairy. If you haven't been to her site, be sure and check her out! Karen adds beautiful vintage images each day and is so generous to share them! I fell in love with the vintage Parisian travel guide image, so I Mod Podged (did I also tell you that I love Mod Podge? I think I am addicted to the stuff?!!) the image to the inside backing of the shadow box. I am really happy with how she turned out! I ended up selling it in my Etsy shop. Now I want one myself!
