Takeaway Tuesdays on the Made2bCreative BlogSticking to some candlelight!

Wow!  It is December 6th already!  November was just a blink in my eye.  I’ve got to get a move on and work on my Christmas shopping.  How about you?

Giving you a quick an easy idea for this time of year because we all know time is flying.  Takeaway Tuesdays are reserved for easy projects and believe me, this is easy and inexpensive.  You just need some glass candle holders or small jars and some clear stickers.

You have got to love all the scrapbooking and craft type stickers that are available to us in the craft stores these days.   Most have several on a sheet so you can do several candle holders with one sheet.

DIY Home Decor - Easy Personalized Candle Holders

The stickers on the ones above are from Hobby Lobby.  They have some great clear stickers with verses and faith type sayings on them.

Tip:  They make so many encouraging word stickers that these would make really cute Secret Sister gifts.

DIY Christmas Candle Holders

I got the stickers above from Hobby Lobby too but you can find clear Christmas stickers almost everywhere.



  • Glass candle holders or jars with a smooth surface.
  • Soft cloth
  • Clear stickers



  • Clean and wipe the surface of your glass candle holder or jar with a cloth.  If it needs it, pull out some Windex and give it a thorough cleaning.  Just make sure your surface is clean and dry.
  • Place on your sticker to the desired spot and smooth out over the surface.


What I like most about this project is that you can personalize it for whatever season or theme you want.  See the one below I did with a deer sticker for my mantle.

Sledding Fun!

Takeaway Tuesday is here again.  Today instead of my own project I am sharing a cute idea that I found online.  These look pretty easy and also economical—two things I just love in a project!

Sharing a video from Factory Direct Craft today for the instructions.





I’ve seen several different versions of these on Pinterest so look around before making any.  There are slight variations on the blogs below that you may want to try.

Thanks for stopping in.  Are you making any ornaments for Christmas?  Feel free to leave a comment.  Love hearing from you!

Oh deer!

Loving all the deer decorations around in the stores for Christmas.  I needed to redo my kitchen chalkboard from fall over to something a little more Christmasy, so I decided to try my hand at a plaid deer.  I’m sure I may change it before Christmas gets here but at least it’s not “hello fall” anymore.

This chalkboard sits over my coffee–hot cocoa bar.


I got the sled in the photo below from a yard or estate sale a few years ago.  It’s perfect to hold hot cocoa packets.  I make my hot chocolate in a saucepan on the stove using almond milk, cocoa, Stevia, and a dash of vanilla,  but my kids like the packets.


Thanks for stopping in to see what I’m up to.  Just starting my Christmas shopping.  I have only bought one gift so far so I have to get busy!

Have a creative day,
