I am all inspired by the Scandinavian living and what has caught my attention is the recent bloom of everything geometric. From vases and table legs to candle holders. And to add a new twist to this raging trend, I have chosen pink pastel as my base as opposed to the copper and whites you see the most. And the pale pink couldn’t be any more perfect as the Pantone 2016 color of the year, so you can very well start incorporating it into your DIY home decor right away.
- Clay ( 1.1 lb )
- Gold gilding
- Candle Stick
- Masking Tape
- Pale Pink Spray Paint
1. Roll out a ball of clay of your desired size but make sure your chunk is bigger than the size of what you want because we will be cutting them, later on rendering it further smaller than it would have been.
5. Leave it aside until dry (which can take up to 2-3 days ). If you find any imperfections you can easily sand it off with a good grit sanding paper and then clean with a damp cloth to remove any dust.
7. In a well-ventilated area, spray two coats of paint as per the instruction of your paint. I left a gap of 20 minutes in-between for the paint to dry. Remove your tape carefully and brush down two alternative spots gold.
Voila! you have yourself a brand new geometric candle holder. I love it so much, I can’t stop staring at it as it makes the list of one of my favorite DIY home decor items amongst my speckled jewelry dish and woven paper planter. What makes this color so special is that it acts more like a neutral tone that goes well with just about anything of the likes of glass, metallic shades, warm wood, etc.
