Just a couple more pics of examples of the fun, grubby, primitive candles I make that I will be selling on this blog when it officially opens for selling sometime in May.
My candles will come wicked or unwicked and will come in a variety of yummy prim scents you can choose from! The best, my candles are made from all recycled jars!
This first candle is grunged up with yummy nutmeg. The lid has been painted red and also has prim nutmeg added to it. The picture is of a little boy and girl in their best 4th Of July outfits. The little girl holds an American Flag. The quote I chose is "She's My Yankee Doodle Joy". A rusty wire decorated with rusty bells is wrapped around the candle jar's neck.
The 2nd candle shows an aged, poor depression era black couple. I think the pic sums everything up enough, so felt no quote needed for this particular candle. What a historical, touching picture. This candle jar lid was painted yellow and both the lid and jar nicely grunged up with a mixture of spices. I wrapped some tea-stained cheesecloth around the jar's neck and added rusty safety pins and bells.

Here is a breakdown of each Prim item in the Give A Way!!
The bag of my homemade tarts are in the scent of Banana Nut Bread! So delicious!! They are in a muffin shape and drizzled with white 'frosting' then sprinkled with real cinnamon! The tarts come in my signature ShabbyKAT bag with cute paw prints!
2 grunged up battery votives! I have grubbied these up with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves! They look great in the dark!!
These hang tags have been primmed up with my coffee, vanilla and cinnamon mixture then baked!
The first tag is a depression era family, one of my favorite primitive subjects! They are standing outside their wooden shack that is propped on top of their vehicle.
The 2nd tag the winner will get is of an adorable little boy in a washtub being carefully watched over by his dad. The tag is outlined in prim X's and dots.
The grubby jar candles I make are all from recycled jars. I incorporate vintage photos and phrases then put the jar through a massive grunging process!
This jar candle is a small 6 oz jar & shows a cute black boy eating a piece of yummy watermelon. The quote reads: "Watermelon - It's a good fruit. You eat, you drink, you wash your face". The scent is Apple Jack 'n Peel....so good!!!
The candle has tea stained muslin wrapped around it with some rusty 'ol pins & a bell!
***PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A WICKLESS CANDLE....NO BURNING INVOLVED. FOR WICKLESS CANDLES (they are truly my favorite kind of candles!) YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE A SIMILAR TYPE OF BURNER AS ONE OF THE FOLLOWING.
