Holiday Hostess Gift Idea

I picked up this adorable pedestal at the tag sale over the weekend done by Elizabeth and Co. I actually picked up two of them, and this was the smaller one. I figured it would be a nice way of giving a hostess gift during the holidays.

I picked up some garland on sale at Michaels and cut it apart.  It ended up being more cost effective than purchasing the individual pieces they had nearby.

I placed a candle holder from World Market's clearance section from the last holiday season in the middle.  I made my own candle inside using wax and scent from Michaels as well.

I then added a metal like sticker to the outside for just a bit more sparkle to the candle holder. 
Not a bad little gift for around twelve dollars or so. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I couldn't agree more...this is extremely lovely. What a great post to get us thinking about Thanksgiving and remembering to bring a little something for the person in charge of the feast. This turned out perfect. I know someone is going to be very happy to be on the receiving end of this.

  2. I'd LOVE to get that as a gift! So pretty!!

  3. Oh my Megan! Some lucky hostess is going to be so glad to get that. I know I would be! Love a little sparkle without a lot of glitter too. Great project and you know I love the low cost!

  4. That looks beautiful! I'm quite impressed you were able to put that together. Thanks for the inspiration!
