I just couldn't resist making this tea light holder just a teensy bit early, so go ahead. Roll your eyes. Shake your head. But, just look at this cute little thing!
I feel a set of them coming on...
As usual, I was prowling around the dollar store, and the fall decorations are starting to arrive. Now, I really like ribbon. Plain is all right on certain applications, but I would prefer a nice pattern. Something to make the eyes smile. Mine lit on this one particular wide ribbon with a great autumn leaf design, so in the cart it flew.
The tea light holder was in the next aisle. You know where that went. From there, I was concentrating on my list and not thinking about the first two items.
The next morning is when 'what to do with it' came crashing down on me. Other projects were immediately pushed back so I could make a new mess on my desk.
After the Mod Podge dried, the little tea light holder looked half naked. Something was missing. At this point, I walked out of the studio for a little break. When I returned, the answer was staring me in the face.
What about the bottom? it said.
Okay. Sounds good to me. Now- how to apply more cutouts. My mind ran around like a gerbil on steroids, until it finally fell exhausted but satisfied in a heap under the base. Wow. What a trip.
Autumn Light was born.
Enjoy the rest of summer, everyone. Fall comes too soon.
