Holiday Decorating with Paint

Holiday Decorating with Paint

By

Hey guys! It's Allison here from House of Hepworths. Today I'm going to show you how to make a festive holiday candle centerpiece. It looks really classy and was so easy to make. Anyone can make this, I promise!

Silver and Gold holiday candle tutorial

To make this silver & gold holiday candle arrangement, you will first need to gather your supplies:

3 candles, glass dish, river rocks, gold and silver spray paint

Take your rocks outside and spread them out in two separate piles on a scrap piece of cardboard. Once they are laid out give each pile a thin even coating of spray paint.

When they are dry, give them a 2nd coat of spray paint if needed, allow them to dry, then flip them all over and coat the underside of each rock.

You are now almost finished with your beautiful holiday candle arrangement! Gather up your stones, mix them together and set aside for a minute. To complete this arrangement you first add your candles to the dish.

Now sprinkle your mixed stones in around the candles.

You are now finished! Light your candles and enjoy your holiday season!

This arrangement would also look fabulous with other color combinations of rocks: red and green, blue and silver, hot pink and teal or white. The combinations are endless.
