Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.36

Hello everyone...I can't believe it's already November...how about you? The Christmas holiday season is just around the corner and that means that all of us will be very busy in the next few weeks getting our homes all spruced up for this wonderful time of the year. I'm hoping to get started a little early this year with my decorating, but I will be sure to stay inside with it until after thanksgiving. I'm still getting my dinning room all put back together after the makeover with the new floors and paint color...hoping to post about it later this week. This week I thought I would share with you a NIFTY THRIFTY idea for changing the look of your candles...it's sooooo simple..take a look and let me know what you think. Looking forward to see what all of you have to share with us this week...so link up and let's get this party started!
                                                       Hope y'all come back...real soon,
                                                                         Linda                      


Cut a strip of gift wrap paper and instantly add some pop to some plain candles!!!

                                    This can be done year round...just think of all the possibilities!!!
                          Another simple idea...wrap them with some burlap and add some ribbon!!!
                                                             ***PLEASE NOTE***
                                        Don't burn the candles while you have paper or fabric wrapped
                                                                     around them.

***Please everyone, follow these guidelines!****

1.. Be sure to refer back to my blog so everyone can see who is participating today, include the NTT button in your post (copy and paste the html code under the button…the button is located on my sidebar). Please make sure that you have put my NTT button or my blog name with a link on your post. I have seen that some of you have forgot to do this…so this is just a sweet reminder.

2. This party is for sharing thrifty finds from garage sales, thrift stores, consignment shops, craigslist and even those awesome deals that you find at any retail store. Please do not link to an Etsy shop or something similar (I will delete the link...believe me...I don't like doing this).

See, I had never thought of this before, but it is a great idea to update some of my candles. And you don't have to worry about me not taking off the paper before I burn them, because I like candles for the looks, but can't take the smell, so I never burn them (saves on buying candles though).

I like decorating my candles for the season- last fall, I glued lentils, black-eyed peas, and corn kernels on them. I've even used decorative tacks. It is a lot easier to wrap them with paper or fabric, though! Nice job, Linda! ~ Sue
