Button Candle

I was over on Pinterest the other day and saw this cute candle with buttons that my sister had pinned.  It was a cream colored candle with cream buttons.  So cute.   I decided I needed one so off to Wally World I went. 

I found a cream colored candle – warm vanilla crème scented (it smells like cake) and some brown toned buttons.  I also picked up a brown candle holder on closeout.

I love the different tones of the buttons - browns, creams, grays and a few with hints of blue.

This was one of the easiest projects I’ve ever done.   I just hot glued the buttons around the base of the candle in layers.  Jorie told me where she thought I needed more buttons and that was it. 

Easy, cheap, simple and I love how it looks.
