I wanted to post this candle that WyoKrista sent me because it is so cool and would be a great idea for a recycled holiday present.
She took a rusted tuna can and put glitter on it then attached a shell, a drawer knob, buttons and twine and filled it with candle wax. I love it!!




her trademark sunflower!!!

That's the prettiest rusted tuna can I've ever seen. Did she seal it? It looks sort of glossy.

I used a glittery type of clear coat paint that I found for free at a yard sale this summer....
