Book Page Flowers and Candle Sticks

Check out this cute candle stick I got at Good Will. It was originally white but I wanted something with a little more antique and autumn feeling so I painted it Pistachio Green with spray paint by Krylon....
I just love that color!! 

For the paper flowers I used an old book that had been caught in the rain at a garage sale so there was no guilt about ripping the pages out.  :)

The flowers are oh-so simple to make!! 

You cute a circle and then cut that into a spiral ...
Roll it up from the outside in...
Starting out tight and rolling loser as you go...
I used a hot glue gun to glue the bottom and keep it from unrolling.

I cut a 3/4 inch strip of my book page and glued it in a circle to slip onto the candle and then glued my paper flower to that...
.  For some I cut out leaves,  folding the leaf in half to give it shape...

Of course I would never burn the candles with the paper on them, but they do add a lovely touch don't you think?

Well got to go for now but I have a ton more Autumn decorations to come.
Do Check back!!!

PS:  I will be linking up to many of the parties on my side bar.
