Dollar Tree Bells



Dollar Tree Bells Re-Purposed to Candle Shades

In my last post I shared the trees I found at the Dollar Tree and while I was at the Dollar Tree  I noticed these gold glittered Christmas bells.   I picked  three of them up, not sure what I was going to do with them, but I knew I would be changing the gold for sure.  Not a big gold fan, but a little is OK.











I painted them with some latex paint, leaving a little of the gold glitter showing.


I had these candle sticks.  I decided to paint them to match the bells.

I painted on some gold glitter glue to match the bells


You probably can't see it to well, but they have flameless candles under the bells, now candle shades.

It really is very pretty when lit up.



I had some old books, I took the covers off and bound them with some twine and decorated the top with some pearls and floral picks.



Wishing you all a great week.
