Spring Into Christmas

While on a recent junking trip,
I came across a bin full of old bed springs.
 Not knowing what I would do with them,
I went ahead and bought 3.
They would have been cute with some small pumpkins sitting on top of them, but I was thinking about Christmas!

So, I picked up some candles at the Dollar Store...
they came 2 to a box so each candle was only 50cents!
I placed a candle inside each spring.
They wouldn't stand up straight, so I cut some fabric into strips, wrapped it around the candle and tied it to the spring.

 Now we are ready to spring forward into Christmas!


And, while I was at the Dollar Store,
I bought 3 vases.
I covered them using Christmas napkins that I had
 leftover from last year.
Then I added a row of buttons to cover the edge.
I used the same technique that I shared
 when I covered these jars...

You can see that post HERE.

Do you shop at the Dollar Store?
You should... they have great items to craft with.
And no one paid me to say that (unfortunately)!

  4. So funny because I too picked up three rusty springs a few weeks ago. I haven't dressed mine up yet. I love your idea and think I will have to copycat! I was thinking of hitting Ikea for their little crystal candleholders (I think they are like 99 cents) to keep the candles upright.

  10. I love both the springs and the vases. As for the Dollar Store? I try to avoid it - I NEVER spend just one dollar. All those dollars add up fast. It is amusing in one of our stores. When a customer asks how much something is, everyone in the store shouts "One dollar!"
