I found these brass candlesticks at my neighborhood garage sale last weekend for $5. They kind of remind me of tulips or of the weapon in the "Clue" game.
First I dipped them in bowling water to remove any wax. I'm not sure how else to do it, but it worked.
I also found the fabulously tacky bird sculptures at the dollar store.
I took them, along with a few more projects that I'll post later, in the back-yard and busted out my spray paint. I gave them a few coats each. Then I glazed them (technique here)
They made their debut at my daughter's 13th B-day Party.
Currently, they are hanging out on my piano, but I may move them to my mantel. They turned out so great, I want to put them everywhere.
Linking up here.
Check out these ideas.
