At Michaels the other day, while standing in line, I was looking through those bins they cleverly surround the exit row with, and I saw these plastic animals for $1 a piece! I grabbed them knowing there would be something fun I could do with them. I'm not usually a fan of candle tapers because they tend to have a more formal vibe. I decided that making candle stick holders from the plastic toys was the perfect remedy! Check out the images below for the how to as well as a full description below the images.
- Plastic Animal Toys
- Electric Screw driver with a 1/4in bit and a 7/8in bit
- Spray Paint, I used Valspar Classic Bronze Metallic
- Tapered Candlesticks
- Spray paint animals
- Drill pilot hole with 1/4in bit
- Drill large hole with 7/8 bit
- Do a second coat of spray paint
- If your animals were hollow, you may have to stuff some paper towels in them to keep the candles strait
You're done! Now place them on your table for a fun and whimsical centerpiece!
