Frozen Autumn inspired Christmas decoration
I love winter. I love those lilac, blue and white colors of it, the coolness, noises that snow makes when it's really cold (in Poland -20C degrees is quite normal:)) Now at the end of March in Poland there's still -7 Celsius degrees so I'm posting this project i made before Christmas.

You definitely know those swedish candelabra. I had a plain one lying in my cabinet for a few years. Inspired by winter beauty and Frozen Autumn music i decided to revamp it!
I used autumn leaves from my garden to decorate this lamp.

  • Step 1

    Clean your candelabra of necessary. If its oily, use alcohol or nail varnish remover. Paint it white with acrylic paint mixed with water - it should be a thin emulsion. Put at least three layers.

    Mix paints to create lilac color (let the paint not be equal - darker or lighter color is an extra touch). After the candelabra is quite dry (the surface shouldn't be watery)paint your leaves with lilac aint and stamp it on the candelabra.
