. . . Thanksgiving Candles and Halloween Art . . .

I love getting packages in the mail so when this box of goodies showed up on my doorstep it was like Christmas morning for me!  The box was filled with all kinds of treats from David Tutera's new line of Card Making Supplies called Celebrate and they are available now at JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts.  David Tutera is the host of My Fair Wedding and now offers this fantastic paper craft line that you will love.  I'm pretty sure you will want to run to JoAnn's and grab some of these supplies because he has really done a great job making crafting and card making simple.

I decided to dress up a couple very boring candles that I had sitting around and figured that this set of card making supplies was the perfect spot to gather my embellishments to make those candles not so boring.  It took me minutes to add a few touches to the candles and now they don't look so bland.  I love them and this set of card making supplies.


Look at all these goodies that are part of David Tutera Celebrate!  I love how the cards and steps are all numbered to really make card making a simple task!

 I wanted to fancy up some boring candles so I grabbed the supplies from the David Tutera Celebrate set and went to work.  I used the adhesive that came with the set and layered two paper borders together to give a little dimension

 I then took those paper layers and attached them directly to my candle with glue dots.  I then used one of the stickers that came with the set and added that to the front center of my candle.  I then used some of the string that came with the set and wrapped my candle holder with it for a little something "extra" and those couple quick steps really made for a great update to my boring beige candle.

 For the second candle I did the same layers for the candle wrap and then I used one of the great cards that had a punch out and used the center oval piece from it.  I used the sanding block that came with the set and really roughed up my red tag then added another layer and then used a sticker from the set that says "Happy Thanksgiving".  I attached all of this directly to the candle and then used two buttons from the set to add a little more dimension.  Tada! 

 The David Tutera Celebrate set made this one of the easiest and quickest crafts I've done in a long time!  It was so easy and turned out so great!

 I also used the kit to create this fun birthday card.  It took me about 2 minutes to finish it but it looks like I spent a lot of time on it.  Love!

 I also made a cute Halloween Canvas using elements from David Tutera's Celebrate Card Making Line.  This was super easy and turned out so cute too!  

 I gathered a few of the cards and tags that came in my goody box and then used some Halloween stickers and washi tape I had around the house to create this super simple and super cute Halloween art.  It's all about just layering the paper and then putting the finished cards on the canvas.  I then framed the cards out with washi tape.  Super simple!
