Glittered Candlesticks

On a regular basis Morgan reads Lindsey's blog to see what type of projects she is working on or checks her shop to see  what new items she has created.  (By the way, if you haven't checked out her shop... go now. Cute cute stuff.)

Morgan has crafty mom envy. 

I have crafty mom envy. (There is not one crafty bone in my thirty five year old body)

A little over a week ago, Lindsey posted a tutorial on glittered candlesticks.  As soon as Morgan saw them she wanted to make them. It sparkled. It involved glitter. She was sold.

Since we are cutting back on our spending for gifts this year (thanks to FPU), Morgan and I decided she could make the candlesticks for her piano teacher.

The candlesticks were super easy to make, inexpensive, and really cute.  Thanks Lindsey for the great idea!

Those are awesome! They make me wish I was crafty and/or talented. My projects never turn out!

Great idea! I can't wait to do fun projects with Brinley some day, right now if we tried I have a feeling that it would be a terrific mess! Tell Morgan thanks for all her comments. The one she left about her boss made me laugh out loud!
