Gold Canyon Style - Halloween Makeover #2

So, here we have another totally versatile piece.  The Floating Tealight Trio.  You can use the little floating glasses inside the 3 vases to float your tealights on water or you can later cute decorations (like split peas and white beans) to give this a great look for your room.  But an easy change out will get your Tealight Trio ready for the holidays!  Candies are great but don't burn candles on top of chocolate candles or you'll end up with a melted mess :)

This re-do is super simple!
1.  Empty the tealight trio jars & save your decorations for after the holidays!
2.  Tie some cute ribbon around each of the 3 jars (I layered a striped orange and a striped green)
3.  Add the super cute black Cat Magnacharms (2) from Gold Canyon to the larger vases
4.  Fill with Halloween candy (I used candy corn M&M's; YUM!!!)
5.  Try to stay out of the candy instead of grabbing a handful every time you walk by ---- dangerous!

Gold Canyon-style Halloween Makeover

If you get the right base pieces, then all it takes is a little tweaking for the holidays!  Here's my "little black dress" of my fireplace mantle (the Stoneware Stands).  They look gorgeous on their own, but if you add some accessories they look even better.  Change those accessories up for the season & your holiday decorating is done!

To get this look:
Start with your base pieces . . . the Stoneware Stands and large heritage candles (diamond light jars!)

1.  Switch out the ribbon around the candle - the Halloween one is purple with white polka dots
2.  Sit the candle on the larger stand on top of the Whimsical Witch Legs
3.  Add a Witch Hat Tie wrapped around the middle of the shorter stand
4.  They're hard to see, but I added some Bat Magnacharms to the ribbons.  They hook on with a magnet and are a perfect little accessory and come in a set of 3!

Empty candle jar . . . Updo!

If you're an avid candle burner, you either have tons of empty jars lying around or you are throwing them away (which is what I did for years).  Its time to start using those candle jars! 

This week, my husband brought home some beautiful roses for me (bonus points for him!!!).  After a couple of days they opened and soon started to droop a little which meant it was time to trim the stems.  I went drastic, cut them way down, and put one of those empty candle jars to good use!

This is one of Gold Canyon's medium diamond cut jars -- they're gorgeous as a candle & make a stunning jar to use for just about anything afterward, plus, you don't have to remove a label to re-use them!

Step 1:  Fill your empty jar with water & colored stones
Step 2:  Add a cute ribbon
Step 3:  Cut your flowers & add to your "new" vase!
