We've added another 4-1/2" bringing our seasonal snowfall total up to 256.5". We lost power several times on Tuesday, and this was our blustery view yesterday.
Things look much better today - amazing what a little sunshine and blue sky can do!
Even though it doesn't look like we're quite through with winter, we're still looking forward to spring. Here's another quick project I recently completed.
You may remember the makeover I gave to a Dollar Tree candle holder back in December. I blinged it up a little for Christmas and/or Valentine's Day with some red sequin ribbon. You can see that blog post here.
I really liked those Dollar Tree candle holders, so I picked up 2 more for this project. My color of choice for most of my spring/Easter projects/displays this year is blue - blues that will coordinate with this yarn from Walmart ($2.97) in Key Largo Tweed.
This is the yarn I used for my dollar store vase makeover. You can see that project here. For these candle holders, I threaded the yarn through a large needle and wove it in & out of the open work of the metal candle holder.
I knotted the beginning and end of the yarn on the inside of the candle holder.
I started weaving the yarn in & out at the bottom and finished it off by weaving in & out of the seam on the back of the candle holder.
Since I didn't use any glue, these can be deconstructed easily to makeover again in any other color - or used again as they were originally purchased.
Since yarn is involved, you should obviously use only battery-operated candles in these candle holders.
Stay tuned, as I'm still not finished with that yarn.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
