When I read that Debbiedoo's and Fox Hollow Cottage are hosting a Valentine's Party where all the crafts are made with items from the Dollar Tree I knew that I was up for the challenge. When I walked in the Dollar Tree my mind drew a blank and my creativity was gone.
(It didn't help that I took my 4 kids with me. Mom. Mom. Mom. MOM!)
After browsing the whole store I went back to the candles and found these.
I melted the candles on the stove. I took the wicks out of the candles to use later. I used a few more red candles, I already had, to get enough wax.
For the heart shaped candle I poured the white first and added a little red to make pink. When It was dry I added the red to make a layered candle.
To make the tall candle I tied a string to the wick and wrapped it around a pencil to hold it upright.
I then poured in the remaining red wax.
For the next craft I glued a candle dish and a candle stick together.
They turned out beautiful and all for $6!
