Twine Wrapped Candle Pillars

I made these twine wrapped candle pillars just in time for summer entertaining!

The tag sale season has begun here in Connecticut and it's always fun to stop the car when I see tag sale signs.  A few weeks ago I scored these ceramic candle pillars for $5.00.
I loved the chunky shapes but not the ceramic finish. I wasn't sure what I would do with them but for $5.00 how can you go wrong?

I decided to buy some twine at the hardware store and wrap them. It was such a simple project that my only supplies were twine, spray mount (to get them sticky) and some glue for spots that weren't sticky enough.

Although it wasn't hard, it was a bit tedious. Working in front of the TV helped!


After a few evenings, they were done!
Perfect for summer dinners on the porch.
