This SIMPLE idea will put your old sewing patterns to good decorative use!
Y’all are going to LOVE this idea!!! I first came up with it a while back at my mom’s house and haven’t had a chance to share it. When I was at the 99 Cents Only Store the other day I grabbed a set of LED light candles for this project so I could use this crafty idea at our house. You can only do this sewing pattern decor idea with a battery operated candle!!!! No fire allowed.
I’ve shared before my love for vintage sewing patterns, but not for the traditional use. You can find these for next to nothing at thrift stores and garage sales, you may even have some old one in your sewing room. Grab one up for the quickest makeover you ever saw!!!
Unfold your pattern, pick a good spot (I like to see the writing on the section I pick). Cut two squares a few inches wider than the candle holder part of your candlestick. I usually crinkle up the paper a bit.
How cute is this little added touch to make a regular old candlestick situation gorgeous! Remember, only do this with a battery operated candle, it’s cute, but we don’t need to burn anything down!!! I love the battery operated candles better anyway for decor spaces because most come with built in timers, these did. With a timer your candles will actually get “light” and glow in the evenings for you with no effort on your part, so romantic! Be my bestie and share this precious idea or Pin it for later! Thanks a bunch!
