Hello! Cathy Andronicou joining you today with a fun idea for the holidays. I can't resist a bargain at Ikea and this battery operated candle is no exception! The only thing is, it looks a little too plain! So I whipped out my super shiny SRM Gold Vinyl, a few dies and enhanced it!
Here's what the candle looked like before enhancements, fresh from Ikea!
With the help SRM Stickers Gold Metallic Vinyl-Glossy, a Penny Black die and a Spellbinders Grand Circle die, it can be transformed!
Die cut the deer from the Gold Metallic vinyl, don't throw away the waste, use the circle die to create a stencil for another project.
Adhere the vinyl to the candle and voilá it is done in a jiffy!
Now for that waste that was put to one side. I found an inexpensive glass cookie jar, and placed the stencil waste on one side, then added some Armour Etch - Glass chemical etching cream and left for around 15 minutes.
Once the etching cream has worked it's magic, wash off thoroughly with water and then remove the vinyl. If you remove carefully it can be reused.
Your jar is now ready to fill with yummy cookies! Love how the light from the candle glows!
And even with the candle turned off, it still looks festive!
What a fun treat to leave out for Santa!
