An Ugly Candle

This is the most ugly candle I have ever seen, but I insist on keeping it and using it because I am way to cheap frugal.  I got this candle at a church rummage sale.  I thought it went with a candle holder that I was purchasing for $.50.  Well, the lady charged me a dollar for this candle and a dollar for a candle that was half gone!  I didn't realize what had happened until I left and was headed down the road, so here is the ugly candle that has come to stay in my living room!I took some scrapbook paper that matched my living room and wrapped around it, tacked it down and then tied  piece of jute around it.  Even my dh thinks it looks nice.

I'm linking up to:


  1. Cute idea and it looks much better

  2. Ahhh you're keeping it because of the principle of the thing! I would too! Nice transformation!


I love to hear what you think! Thanks for your feedback!
