A couple of weeks ago my daughter in law had a garage sale. This set of ceramic, faux crazed set of country candle holders did not sell. I took them home to upcycle. First I removed the homespun ribbon and metal dragonflies.
I purchased a two pack of 3 1/2" terracotta pots at Dollar Tree.
I painted the Dollar Tree pots with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in "Primitive", a gray shade that I really love. The paint covered the pots in just one coat. Then I applied a coat of DecoArt's clear wax. I painted the dragonflies in a light green shade with other craft paint that I had on hand.
Next, I glued the pots to the tops of the candle holders with E6000 glue, placed a heavy book on the top of each pot, and let them dry overnight.
Lastly I drilled a hole in the metal dragonflies and tied them on with jute, and added faux greenery to the pots.
*I received Chalky Finish Paint and wax at no cost from DecoArt, but all opinions about the paint are my own!
This project was almost free!
