Craft Of The Day: Give An Ordinary Candle A Stylish Chevron Design

Chevron stripes are still really popular as a design motif, and for good reason: they are a stylish way of making your decor pop and vibrate in a space. The pattern is so eye-catching that it's hard to look at it and not say, "Wow!" That's why we love to take an ordinary item and give it some flair by adding this zig-zag pattern...ourselves. That's where today's Craft Of The Day comes in. Take a look:

This DIY chevron candle from Hi Sugarplum! is the perfect side table decor. And making your own isn't as tough (or time-consuming) as you might think. Actually it's pretty simple. You just need glass candle jars, contact paper, scissors, and paint. We love the bright blue color this creative crafter chose, but any bold color will make a big statement. To see a full tutorial on how to make these chevron candles and other great crafts, just head over to Hi Sugarplum!
