I think I will need to live to 100+ to visit all the places, make all the crafts, prepare all the recipes, create all the jewelry, plant all the gardens, etc. that I have pinned, plan to pin and want to pin.
Sometimes, I think to myself there is no way I can even begin to work on any one of the myriad of ideas pinned to my "For Free Time - DIY Crafts" board, mainly because I don't always have alot of that thing called "free time." I don't even have as many things pinned as some of the folks I follow. The other problem is that besides the time investment, many projects also involve a financial investment into tools or materials that I either don't have on hand or have enough of to make the project.
However, the flip side is that when I am sorting out a cabinet, or closet, and come across items that remind me of something I have seen on Pinterest, I become totally inspired.
This project is no exception. I found this image on Pinterest from http://eighteen25.blogspot.com.
But that is about to change with just a bit of glue after I ran everything through the dishwasher to make sure they were sparkly clean.
Step 1: Gather all your tools and materials
- E600 glue
- Small Level
- Toothpicks (I like the flat ones since you can use them to "scoop" up the glue)
- Paper plate
- Tape (if needed)
Since all my candlesticks are the same, for me this was the quickest step.
Step 3: Put dollop of glue on the paper plate
Size depends on how many pieces you have to glue.
Step 4: Applying the glue
Using a toothpick gather up some glue and apply to the top of the candlestick.
Step 5: Placing the candlestick to the vase
Place the vase upside down on your workspace.
Gently place the glue end of the candlestick on the bottom of the vase.
Step 6: Making sure things are straight
With your level, check to make sure things are straight.
If your vase/jar has a particularly curved bottom, you may need to use a couple of pieces of tape to keep the candlestick in the level position to dry.
Step 7: Move the glued piece(s) to somewhere safe so it can dry without being bumped.
I places a couple of books on top to make sure things things got good adhesion.
E600 glue needs 48-72 hours to fully cure.
Once the glue has cured, remove tape (if necessary) turn it over and fill with whatever fits your decor.
