I was in the Dollar Tree checking out some of their Christmas items and a plastic ornament caught my eye. The ornament has a tear drop shape and as soon as I saw it an idea pop in my head. This will work perfect for a fun and unique light.

The supplies that I’ll be using are:

1. One plastic ornament from the Dollar Tree

2. One 6” burnt mustard timer taper from our website

3. One rusty taper holder from our website

4. Dremel

5. Hot glue

6. Elmers glue

7. One 2.5” candle ring from our website

8. Paint brush

9. Cinnamon

10. Walnut colored Gel Stain from DecoArt

11. Sandcastle glitter from StarCraft

12. Recycled ribbon roll

The first step is to use the dremel to cut the bottom of the ornament off.

Be sure to cut right at the ridge area. If you go too high the opening will be too big to fit over the candle.

You’ll paint on a thin coat of Elmer’s glue and then sprinkle on the glitter.

The next step is to paint the recycled ribbon spool with the Walnut colored Gel Stain.

I sprinkled on some cinnamon and added some Elmer’s glue over the cinnamon.

The next step is to glue the candle holder onto the spool.

You can find the links for our candle, candle holder and ribbon down below.















I wanted to add a small candle ring so I cut one of ours to fit.

You’ll add a small amount of hot glue to the bulb and slip it onto the candle.

This was fun to make and looks so pretty at night. It can be added any where in your home for a fun decoration.
