Handmade Holiday: DIY Painted Candlesticks

Christmas is in 9 days!! What in the world. Have you been overloading on ABC Family and hot chocolate? I have been enjoying wrapping/ looking at Christmas lights/ National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. If you have any more ideas of Christmasy things I should do, let me know!

If you are still shopping (as I think most people are) or you need a last minute gift idea, it’s not too late for handmade! Candlesticks are a common find at Goodwill, so I think you should be able to find some for this project, no prob.


I love the light wood and the grain, so when I painted them, I left some of the natural wood showing. I chose a mint and coral combo because it’s bright and happy.




Simple, quick, and I think it’s a gift that could make someone feel special.

Enjoying the Good Life,
