That’s how I roll, and you should all know that by now!
I just keep going on another project once the supplies are out and see what else I can come up with using the same.
Mixing mod podge and rit dye project #2.
First one was an experiment that was pretty successful.
Painting a vase with mod podge and rit dye
You be the judge of #2 experiment.
Let’s start with plain ole Dollar tree glass candle sticks.
Pretty boring right?
Let’s mix up this concoction.
Mod podge and the color purple rit dye.
This is about three coats later.
I dipped my brush in water each time in order for it not to clump and smear.
As you can see it sort of turns out crystallized after it dries.
By all means, you can leave as is.
However, I never do…
This is what the bottom of the glass looks like.
As suggested or asked by Bliss
you could also do this project from the inside out,
so it would look like this as well, of course in a vase or window.
That gal is pretty darn smart:)
I got out some dark wax first and lightly applied to the candlesticks…again not a necessary just a want to be creative.
I also got out my leafing bronze paint and did the tops of the candle sticks to add a little class.
And there you have the finished product.
Still using my old camera…
darn battery is taking forever to come in .
I bought this burlap covered votive at Marshall’s.
The number tiles from Target last year.
I do believe these vintage bottles were my inspiration for the color purple:)
I moved my diy familia burlap banner over here for now too!
Who knew $2.00 could look so classy and cute?
You know I am a classy chic…
totally NOT btw..but I can pretend to you.

Debbie, you’re so ‘old-world’ glam, it’s a beautiful vignette!
What a unique idea, they turned out so beautiful! I love the candlesticks, like you said, so much better than plain.
I love the purple. Something about purple makes me happy. These turned out great.
Penny @ The Comforts of Home
How fun is that? I love the way they turned out.
Oh my gosh. You’ve got something here girl! I think the gold trim is awesome too. I’d love to try this idea to make knock-off ironstone. Sort of a creamy white matte color. Do you think that would work? Or better yet…you try it and let me know how it turns out!!!
Hahaha….OK, I will try it Ann!
I almost bought rit at the store the other day….now I really am going to. I have lots of things I could dip.
Love them! Such great ideas from you!
I just love the look!
oh yea Babe,, gonna be doing this. I got box of glass candle sticks at yard sale last saturday, so this is a perfect project for me.
Oh how I missed all your creative ideas and your beautiful home, Debbie! Such a gorgeous and easy transformation of the candlesticks and food for innumerable inspiring projects:) I got to try this out! I also like the bronze paint trim at the top, very nice touch! Beautiful vignette on the tabletop:) Thanks for sharing, Debbie and a Happy 4th! Hugs,Poppy

What a gorgeous vignette! That purple totally is inspiration.
Beautiful Debbie…you come up with the greatest ideas!! Loving the purple!!!
Have a very safe and wonderful 4th!!!
A clever gal you are!!! Amazing that clear glass is under that purple…looks GREAT!
Happy 4th Debbie!!!

Debbie they match your other purples so well. I like that the glass looks sort of vintage-y with that treatment!!
You are always coming up with such unique projects! The purple color ties in well with the other colors in your room. I love the old pharmacy lamp on the table with the banner too, btw!
Very clever and so pretty! Hugs, Leena
Lookin’ good, as always! You make everything look so easy, I just may become a DIYer, yet!
What a cool idea/experiment! I love how it turned out!
I’d say that’s quite a successful ‘experiment’ — a great look achieved with these two simple products and even more so with your additional touches!
Yvonne @ StoneGable
Who knew, Debbie! YOu are amazing!!! What an interesting project! You made a lovely vignette…purple hues are so rich.
This is great I love the candle sticks they came out beautiful. You are a creative genius. This is so cool.
You’re so smart!!! I love this. Thanks.
I was directed to this post at the 4th of July table yesterday. My mom asked if I had missed it. I am definitely going to try this for a specific project I’m working on. I want something cobalt, and I think I can get the look I want with this.
I might just mess the whole thing up. Good thing I’ll only have a couple of bucks invested.
Kimberly ~Serendipity Refined
Great idea! I’m trying it! (and pinning) xo
Cool project! Pinning:)
Beautiful!!!!! So excited to see the purple modge podge. I was out of town when you were planning on posting it. Love the crystals and love how the purple has different hues to it. I have a couple of projects going on right now, one that is on hold for now and then I am going to try this.
Those turned out sizzlin’! You are so right about the purple being happy! OK–knowing me, if I some how accidently got water on the candlesticks–and I know don’t how I would–but you know me! 🙂 Would water wash off the color?
Very Pretty and from the Dollar Store You really should call them and get on their Payroll in Art & Design,
I’m Serious Run to the phone before someone else does it!! lol You know how I Love Your Dollar Tree Projects then add Rit and Modge Podge and You Created a One of a Kind Gem!!!
I have a question about the different types of mod podge. I am going to do your candle holders later this month at a girls art party weekend and I am wondering if you have tips on which mod podge to use be ause there are so many different varieties. Any comments on the different mod podge formulas would be greatly appreciated.
very nice. next time how about trying alcohol ink and mica powder.add maybe a bit of glitter. just suggestions. keep up the good work. remember the greatest artists were considered mad scientists. vangoh, picasso, michael angelo, gallileo
Sounds very interesting! I just ordered some. Thanks for the info.
