Happy Fourth of July!!!

I love to upcycle pieces that I find. 
A few years ago I found the Merry Christmas Wooden Candle Holder…
I decided Fourth of July…Fireworks…why not add a festive candle holder to the celebration!!!

Cover all sides and top with Authentique Heroic Pattern paper. 

Punch Star border from pattern paper; adhere to top of prepared candle holder with paper strip border. 

Add “All Gave Some; Some Gave All” sticker to prepared candle holder. 

Add here a few metal stars to front of candle holder. 

Cover chipboard heart; add to front of box. 
Die cut rosette from pattern paper; adhere to front of star. 
Add small metal nail head to top. 

Add a couple more of the rosettes to other side of candle holder. 

Decorate two candles with pattern paper; stickers and twine. 
Add to finish candle holder. 

I hope you are inspired to keep your eyes open when out shopping!!! 
You never know what you may find that you can upcycle with some Authentique beautiful paper collections!!! 
Happy Fourth of July!!!
