DIY Dollar Tree Farmhouse Candle
Let’s face it, some of the store bought, battery candles leave a lot to be desired! They lack any kind of personality. In an effort to perk these handy, little fellas, let me show you my DIY Dollar Tree Farmhouse Candle makeover.

Dress Up the Candle
I used this candle just like it came when I decorated my DIY lantern for Christmas and it was very nice.
Now that Christmas is past, I took it apart to decorate it more farmhouse style. Naturally, since the candle is a focal point, it needed to be changed. I began by painting the base with mineral Waverly acrylic paint. It took 2 coats. Don’t worry if you get paint on the candle part. That won’t matter when it’s finished.
Attach the Twine
Time to heat up the glue gun and start wrapping the twine around the candle stick. I secured it well at the beginning then began wrapping, applying glue periodically and mashing the twine down therefore ensuring the original candle stick is covered well.
Finish the Twine
Continue wrapping to the top and secure the twine. I don’t intend to ever light mine so you might be careful at this point if you do want to light yours. Make sure not to cover the opening.
Farmhouse Dollar Tree Candle
Wow! What a difference, right?! That cheap looking candle is now a cute, farmhouse style candle you can display proudly! I put mine in my Dollar Tree lantern and decorated it for Easter. Most certainly, I’ll be changing it again after the holiday. This candle is versatile enough to use any where in your Farmhouse decor.
Nice and easy! So what do you think? Are you going to make one for your home? I would like to see your creations or thoughts in the comments below.
