Instructions

CONCRETE JAR CANDLE:

  • To begin making this project, remove the rope from the lid and sand it. Then paint the lid with acrylic paint and set it aside to dry.
  • In Cricut Design Space, add a heart image and size it to fit your project. Before you select "go" to begin cutting, move your heart image close to the center of your vinyl scrap (mine was 4x8).
    Note- The moving of the heart image to the center does not have to be exact. You just want enough extra vinyl (around your heart image) to "mask" your project (refer to the picture in step 3 to see what I mean).
  • Once cut, remove the heart image from your vinyl and peel the large vinyl piece from the backing and adhere to the candle. I mean - it looks like a HOT MESS - but as long as the heart stencil is flat you don't need to worry about the rest! Use a dauber to apply the acrylic paint to the stencil and let it dry.
  • When the acrylic paint has dried, cover the rest of the candle with painters tape. Then, spray glitter paint onto the heart portion of your candle until you have achieved the desired amount of glittery awesomeness. Don't forget to add glitter paint to the lid too! This glitter paint dries almost instantly so it is great for those of us who are impatient!

FRAME:

  • I bought this cute little frame from the “dollar section” at Michaels – but you could use any frame you’ve got at home. To create my distressed glitter look I sanded down the frame, sprayed it with Rust-Oleum primer then applied several coats of the glitter paint until I had the effect I wanted.

PAINTED ROCK:

  • With the same stencil technique I used on the concrete candle I was able to turn my rock in to a special memento in just a few minutes.
    To do this, simply place your stencil on top of your rock and add a coat of spray paint.
