USA Candle Holder

Today I have another quick and easy home decor project perfect for summer. As I have mentioned, I love anything USA or red/white/blue. So this candle holder is another perfect addition to my collection.

Candle Holder Supplies
*When using Bigz dies use a die-cutting sandwich of: a Standard Cutting Pad, followed by the Bigz die (cutting side up), cardstock  and second Cutting Pad. 
*When using Thinlits dies use a die-cutting sandwich of: Sizzix Magnetic Platform, a Standard Cutting Pad, chosen paper or fabric,  Thinlits die (cutting side down), and, finally, a second Cutting Pad.

For this project I actually started with a Halloween candle holder that I bought at a garage sale! But, combine it with some Core'dinations Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection and a little embossing and you have a whole new look!

Step 1: Select square die slightly smaller that block side. Die-cut 5 squares from red cardstock.

Step 2: Emboss four of the square panels using woodgrain embossing folder; sand lightly.

Step 3: Select circle die the same size as top opening.
Step 4: Die-cut circle shape from center of remaining square.

Step 5: Adhere all pieces to candle base.

Step 6: Die-cut stars and "USA" from navy cardstock; sand as desired. Adhere to candle base as shown.

Step 7: Sponge edges of candle block with paint as desired; wrap with twine.
