Hi Friends, How are you today? I am great and hope you are too. We had fun celebrating our Anniversary and today we’re celebrating my husband’s 50th birthday.
Today I’m sharing some fun Bamboo Coastal Candleholders I made for our patio and living room. I am going to be using these for our Tiki Luau Party next weekend but I’ll use them in my Living Room after because they look so pretty.
If you have been following along you know I’ve been planning my hubs 50th Birthday party for next weekend and it’s Luau themed in our backyard.
I wanted to create a center piece that was Tiki inspired but on a budget of course. I made these for $1.00 each and LOVE them.
Can you believe they only cost me $1.00 and a little time….lol.
I love them in my beachy coastal tray and also with some shells around them.
I found these vases at the Dollar Store and bought 8 of them.
If you remember I bought this Reed Fencing at Home Depot and gave our Tiki Bar a makeover with it here.
Well I had some left over and I just cut it up into varying size pieces.
I used Mod Podge I had and just sat down and took my time.
I used a sponge brush and applied the Mod Podge in sections. Then I just placed the reeds onto the glued area and applied more on top. It dries clear and is so fabulous to work with. Sticky but fabulous….lol.
When I was done it looked like this and you can see here that you can see all that glue but when you walk away and come back a couple hours later it looks beautiful.
See lots of glue. Just take your time and apply some coats over top too. If you get it on the glass you can go back and wipe it off with some windex and paper towels too.
I got white candles at the Dollar Store too and love the light that flickers through and bounces around through the bamboo like reeds. So I made 8 of these for $1 each and bought 8 candles for $1 each too. $18 total for the look.
What do you think? Do you like them? Do you add beachy coastal elements to your home. Here are some other ways I added Summer touches to our Mantel and Living Room too.
Want to see more about the 50th Party where I’m going to use these.
I’m linking up to some of my favorite blogs that include From My Front Porch To Yours, Katherines Corner, Over 50 Feeling 40 and Vintage Mama so please go on over and look for this and all the other inspiration and great creative ideas these women are sharing.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day, Lisa
