Today I will make an original boho candle holder out of a thread bobbin.
I needed the following materials:
- Wooden bobbin, height 12 cm, base 8 cm.
- Beige linen fabric and stretching denim.
- Lace cotton.
- Metal accessories, wooden beads.
- Acrylic paint of blue and cotton colours.
- Brush, sandpaper, glue.
So, sandpaper the bobbin for greater smoothness and paint. Mix the blue and cotton paints 1:1. You can take any colour.
I didn't want such deep blue, so after drying, I decided to touch it with the same light cotton paint with the rough side of a sponge.
I didn't like the result, so I painted it once again but slightly white with water several times with an intermediate drying.
This is the colour I wanted. After that, I tore off strips of denim, width 1.5 cm, linen cloth, width 3 cm, to have fraying edges. The length of the stripes is the volume of the bobbin.
Glue the strips.
Try not to press the ragged edges. I glued denim strips along the edges, the beige one in the middle.
The laceI right over the beige strip.
Some lace on the lower part — with an instant glue this time.
Then pick wooden beads on pins and fix them to a metal chain, I also attached metal findings like hearts or dragonflies.
Fasten the chain around the base.
I glued some metal findings, too, and decided to add a bow.
I made two together. And that's what happened. Light the candles and admire.
All is elementary, as one famous character said :) Thanks to everyone who looked through my simple tutorial. I would appreciate comments and likes :)
