Getting Creative at the Dollar Store

I’m still here!!! I’ve been working on a lot of Christmas gifts so I haven’t been posting much…can’t let the cat out of the bag just yet! But I did finish up these so I’ll share. 
Awhile back I saw this post on According to Kelly and wanted to try it for myself.  This was one of my first experiences with spray paint.  Love the colors I picked but I’m not completely happy with how they turned out.

Just like According to Kelly, I used dollar store trays and candlesticks.  I wasn’t as successful with the dollar store glue and I think the hardest part of this project was getting the candlesticks exactly in the center of the trays and inline with the one below it.  I messed up on that a few times as you can kinda tell with the tray in the upper left.  Because of this, I came up with an idea to cover my goof and embellish the trays at the same time.  I went to Michaels and bought these beads…put them around the base of the candlesticks and voilà!

Remember, you need doilies with these, you really don’t want your food sitting on the spray paint!
