Pansy Bird Cage Candle Holder

Hi everyone! I'm back to share a quick and easy candle holder project I created! This can be used as a center piece on a table for a wedding or as a decoration in your home. Lets get started!


I cut two each of the medium and small pansies from the  Pansy Flower Diecut on white cardstock and one leaf sprig from the Spring Leaves Diecut. I inked up the glass tray with Heliotrope and  Peony Inks, add a small amount of water to each ink and laid the Pansy flowers into the mixture. I used a small paint brush to make sure both sides are covered in ink.


Once the flowers dried I shaped each flower with a stylus and adhere together.I cleaned the tray off and inked with Cat's Eye Pigment Lime Ink and add a small amount of water. Next I placed the Leaf Spring diecut into mixture and once completely covered I removed to dry. Once the leaf sprig is dry I inked the edges of the leaves with Jade Chalk Ink and shape each leaf with a stylus.


I adhered the pansy, smaller flowers and leaf sprig to the top of the bird cage and addws a yellow glossy dot to the center of the pansy and purple flat back pearls to the centers of the smaller flowers. I also added a small amount of dried moss as a filler between the flowers.


I looped several strands of light green thread, tied off,  glued underneath the pansy and leaf sprig along with pearl sprays and added a battery operated candle. Now it is finished! 😊 As always if you have questions please let me know.


I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday Challenge: #338-#339
Crafter's Castle Challenge: #6
Simon Says: Anything But A Card


Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!

  4. Beautifully designed. We are truly blessed that you joined our Challenge earlier this month at Word Art Wednesday. There's still time to join our current Challenge and we'd love to see back. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in Isaiah 43:10 which says, “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me." Have a great day!
