Revamped Pumpkin Candle Hostess Gift – Dolloar Store Crafting

This DIY project was so easy and frugal (cheap) that I’m almost embarrassed to share it.

I’m always in the hunt for hostess gifts and found some wonderful pumpkin scented jar candles at the Dollar Tree for of course only a $1.00.  Unfortunately they were plain with a simple silver colored lid.

I simply couldn’t leave them plain!  So I removed the lid spray painted cream & once dry I antiqued with a dark brown paint that I already had and clear coated for protection.  For an extra touch I tied oak leaves left over from my Fall Felt Rose & Just Wreath using some of the jute string along with an adorable Pumpkin Tag.  The Pumpkin Tag I created using a vintage pumpkin image set on top of an ornate orange frame I downloaded from The Graphics Fairy printed on card stock and cut using a tag punch. This little project really only cost me $1.00 for the candle since I already had all the other items on hand.

By the way did you know if you have Microsoft Word 2010 that you can easily remove the background from an image?  You can and it works amazingly well!

  3. I love the smell of pumpkin! It's so the scent right now, I liked how you painted and aged the lid, great idea. I wish I had Word 2o1o, Ive been using 2003 for.ev.er. It does the job. How do you remove the background? Any who it really is cute. Great job, and a BIG thanks for linking up with Sunday's Best. Projects like this inspire us.!
