Dollar Store Redo.....

So do you like to go shopping at the dollar store and find things to remake into something you saw on someone elses blog but you can't remember where or when to give them credit because you've looked at a zillion blogs so you just copy and think oh well I would if I could but I can't so I won't???!!!  How's that for a run on sentence?!

Well I seriously did see this on someone else's blog so and thought I would try to recreate it.  If it is yours please give me a shout out and I will give credit where credit is due! 

Here is everything I started with.... A tall glass candle holder.....a short votive holder......Goop Craft Clue and rocks.  The glue and rocks did not come from the dollar store.  The decorative little stones came from Wal-Mart in the floral section and I think the glue came from Wal-Mart or JoAnn's.  A word about the glue.  It is very strong smelling!  Be sure you use it and let it dry in a well ventilated
 place ~ it is smelly stuff!!!!

Step 1:  Pick up your foot........oh sorry not that kind of step :).....Smear glue on a side of your glass.  Careful using finger...I made a ribbon along the top of where I wanted my design and then smeared the glue around with the applicator noozle and a toothpick.  This is science people! :)
Step 2:  Roll it in the stones.  Flip over and press stones onto the glass.  Drop stones on glass to try and fill in.  Let dry and then repeat on other sides.  I think I did 3 sides.

Glue small votive on bottom of the pillar to give it height, add candle and you are done!
A nice candle holder for under $10 that matches your decor.

If it sounds simple that's because it is!  You can make the rocks wave along the top and to up as high as you want.  I may add more rocks...not sure.  Truthfully I got tired of the smell of the glue and just wanted to finish! :)  I have one more picure for you......

I'm not sure who's more excited about the Cricut I bought today at JoAnn's, me or Naomi!!!!
(a really, no seriously, a really good deal!  Check the flyer if you don't belive me!!!!!)
She say's she gets first dibs on it :)  I know she can't guard it forever...the girl likes to eat...or wait I can get her off with the ribbon and then it will be all mine! baaahaaaahaaaaa! Okay no more sugar I promise! :)

Have a great week~
