~Dazzle Your Tealights and Simple & Sweet Fridays #53~

Take out your tealights and add some sparkle to them.
You can create just about any theme you would like to by adding;
ribbons, glitter, beads, buttons to tealights.
I got out my collection of goodies and started having fun.
I used Aleene's Tacky Glue and a Glue Gun 
to help place the embellishments on the tealights.
I love my new scissors I found on Etsy.
I saw them on Lynne's Dreams on 34th Street blog
 and had to order some,
they look so pretty!
I did some with a French theme.
I had to make some glitter ones. Martha Stewart has all kinds of beautiful colors.
I used some beads from Michael's too!
They would look great for a birthday party.
How about a baby shower and use all kinds of fun buttons.
I ever did some Shabby Chic ones.
 Notice the Laura Ashwell material.
You can use a lot of dime-store treasures 
that will add to your centerpiece.

A sparkle look for any occasion!

Happy Thursday everyone!

I just want to point out that the dishes were made at my hubby's past Ceramic Co. and I used to designed them. The tablecloth is Spanish. I'm saying just cause I'm proud of our dishes, lol!

  29. Do you know the Etsy site for the scissors? My sister, who has EVERYTHING, is a total Paris junkie. She works frequently in Paris and "wows" me with amazing gifts she buys from all over the world. I think I could score points if I found her the scissors.
