Wooden Legs Make Great Candles
I started off the day by cleaning out my neice and nephews' playhouse we built for them here. Well, there was an old kitchen play setthat had the sink/stove combo that had to go.
It was old and weathered from being out in the elements for about 3 years. Didn't look anything like the pic above when we first got it. I managed to save these blue, wooden legs off them:
Then I started painting them black and thought, "hum, they'd make cute fake candles." So I painted them all black and added some primitive styled stars and painted the edges a bit.
I had some flame tips saved that had came off a set of flicker candles that got broke when we moved. They were just plastic pieces shaped like a flame:
And that's it. A cute set of primitive styled, wooden candles for free.
TIP: Ya'll keep an eye out for wooden legs off of toys or old pieces of furniture. You can make numerous amounts of crafts with them. And if you go buy them plain at Lowes or a hardware store, you'd be surprised at the cost of plain wooden legs!
