Hello! Here is what I came up with for the dollar store challenge: something fun and beachy for our porch.
Pillar candles, ping pong balls, glass beads,blue twine- like rope and two star shaped containers.
I took the twine stuff and hot glued it around the ping pong balls (this might be my favorite part).
Then I crushed up the glass beads and mixed with with mode podge and covered the larger star with that, which created a great texture. While that was drying, I scooped the wax out of the pillar candles and melted it to put in the glass star container. I used some of the larger pieces from the smashed up glass beads to show through on the sides of it. Voila! Star candle!
Then, I glued the covered ping pong balls underneath, glued the small star to the big star, placed some non-crunched up glass beads on top, and now I have a super festive centerpiece!
