Hey everyone! Christmas is near and I'm slightly getting excited about the holidays and festive decor. This year, I didn't want to make a classical Advent wreath, I rather decided on making a minimal one with bright colors.
Do you remember my bike restyle project with the spray paint which edding sponsored me for this project? :) I still had some bottles of their colorful spray paint left and decided on making an easy holiday DIY and to upcycle old candle holders and a bottle.
- Permanent spray paint
- Optional: primer and clear varnish
- Painter's tarpaulin
- Old candle holders and / or bottles
First of all, go outside to the fresh air and enfold your painter's tarpaulin. You will need it to protect your environment from paint. :) Then you can either start pray painting with a primer or you can directly apply the first coat of permanent spray paint to your candle holders (and bottles). Wait for some time (according to the instructions on your spray paint's bottle) and then add a second layer. While spraying, make sure to keep some distance between your objects so that you don't accidentally paint the wrong one.
So easy! Then you only need to add some candles and maybe some other pretty decor elements and that's it! :)
For decorating this table, I brought some branches from the woods and painted them white (not with spray paint, but just with a brush) and added some pretty ornaments. I thought that this is a perfect contrast to our turquoise kitchen table. :)
Have lots of fun making your own Advent candle holders! :)
P.S.: In case you are wondering, this blogpost isn't sponsored, I'm just using up my leftover supplies from my recent cooperation with edding. :)
