DIY Painted Candles

The other day I saw where one of the girls from A Beautiful Mess painted some candles and I loved it. Guys, I have candles for daaayyys. My mom collected them for years and gave them to me and I’ve been saving them because….candles. They are pretty and useful and one of those things you just don’t throw out.


So, I grabbed some coral and pale pink acrylic paint from my stash and free-handed a few patterns.

They turned out fun and Anthropology-esque, which I love.

I think the polka dots are my fav!

Enjoying the Good Life,



Side Note: Acrylic paint is non-toxic, but apparently it can still let off small amounts of formaldehyde, so I would suggest using these for decorative use, only.
