Colorful Candlesticks

by Guest 2

Candlesticks create a warm focal point wherever they reside. Make them your own with this easy paint project “how- to”!

Materials:

Candlesticks – mismatched ok

Paint- we used Hot and Spicy T17-18

Spray primer- we used Kilz Odorless

Detail brush

Mini roller

Step 1: Gather old or mismatched candlesticks

Color will be the unifying component in this project, making it ideal for candlesticks that have lost thier partner or are different shapes, materials (no glass) and sizes.

Step 2: Prime candlesticks

For surfaces that haven’t already been painted, it’s always a good idea to prime first.  Priming will create a solid and even surface for the paint to adhere to. Shake your can of spray primer and apply to candlesticks. Allow to dry.

Step 3: Paint candlesticks

Paint your candlesticks in your selected color.  Use your detail brush to apply paint in areas the roller can’t reach.  Allow to dry.  Apply second coat if necessary/desired.

Step 6: Equip with candles and display

Group your candlesticks together or around your home. Set candles in place and light.
