Intro: Cheap Elegant Table Center Piece With Matching Candle
Make a bowl centerpiece and a matching candle to go along with it. All for under 20 dollars. Looks Great.
Step 1: Get Candles
What you want to do is get tealight candles. i made them using wax and coloring/scent. mine are the brown hazle coffe scented ones below, but any tealights will do. to make a tealight get the wax and scent. melt the wax, then melt in the scent or pour in the liquid scent. then pour them into moulds and let them dry.
Step 2: Get Project Cases.
i got a big glass bowl and a small square cup unfortunatly i dont have a picture.
Step 3: Get "innards" of Your Display
i got some decorative sand and some of the glass "pebbles" and some sea shells.
Step 4: Throw It Together
if you actually threw anything then take the glass bowl, smash it untill you get very sharp pieces, and press them to your hea..... just kidding. Add the sand and the glass pebbles in the bottoms of the glass containers. add the shells and organise them untill they look nice. then slowly add water close to the brim of both. then add the candles and whalah. what you want to do is make sure the wicks of the candles float above the rim of the glass ,definatly if you got a glass container that curved in twards the opening.
