My crafty friends….this diy project is for you! It’s simple, colorful and so fun! I’m using one of Plaid’s brand new products…FolkArt Color Shift™ I am obsessed with this new product. There are 10 on-trend colors that shift in changing light- I really wish my camera could capture just how beautiful these colors are! This paint is also water-based, non-toxic, Made in the USA, and has an easy to use brush-on formula. You can use this paint for indoor crafts and outdoor crafting.
Supplies for Candlestick Candy Holders:
- FolkArt Color Shift, in desired colors. They are available in 2 oz & 4 oz sizes
- FolkArt paint brushes
- Unfinished wooden candlestick holders
- Small plate
- E600 Glue
I choose to use the FolkArt Aqua Flash and FolkArt Pink Flash for my project. There are 10 total colors you can choose from including FolkArt Black Flash. You really can find something that will match your home decorating style.
I wanted a simple color block affect and I loved how the raw wood looked on these candlesticks. You could always use two different Color Shift colors but I loved the look of one.
I applied two coats to my candlestick holders, making sure to allow the paint to fully dry in between coats.
My final step was to use some basic white paint that I watered down and a toothbrush. I then held the toothbrush near my candlestick holders and used my finger to splatter the paint off of the toothbrush and onto my candlestick holders.
I used some E6000 glue to adhere the plate to the top of the candlestick and allowed it to dry completely.
We then added some pretty and delicious candy! Needless to say the plates have already needed to be refilled a few times 🙂
