At the Lake Decor

Hi everyone, Laura here! Do you love to create home décor with all your paper crafting supplies? I love creating layouts and cards, but one of my favorite things to create is home décor projects. Today I’ve got a great, easy summertime project to share with you!

Beach Candles- Laura Cox

These will look great on the patio this summer and were so simple to make! I picked up some inexpensive dollar store glasses, then brought out the gorgeous ColorWays Sapphire Collection. I cut the papers about 1" longer than the circumference of the glass. I kept it simple by using the swiss dot paper, then a band of white cardstock (3/4" wide) with the striped paper (1/2" wide). The center picture is one of those super cute Lakeshore SnapShots™! I matted them on the ColorWays paper and then white cardstock. Here are all the pieces ready to go:

I used strong double-stick tape to adhere to the glass and added a small square of straw mesh behind the SnapShots™ square:

I filled the glass with some marbles, and now it’s ready for a small candle for our evenings on the deck.

These would even make a gorgeous table decoration for a wedding using the Vintage Romance SnapShots™, or for a flower club luncheon using the Floral SnapShots™. I love the options!

Products Used:

Paper House ColorWays™ Sapphire Paper Pack
Paper House Lakeshore SnapShots™ Stickers
White cardstock
Straw mesh ribbon
Small glasses

Thanks for stoppin’ by today! Stop back soon for more inspiration!
