You may remember when we made Fir & Grapefruit Candles on the blog. It was definitely one of our favorite DIY projects to date because of how useful they are. We are candle addicts and it’s so much more inexpensive to keep refilling one vessel than to continue purchasing candles. So of course when we were thinking of projects for A Beautiful Mess we thought of candles right away! For this post, we went the route of “turn any jar…

After racking our brains for almost half a year we decided to jump into the color…

Our favorite craft projects are the kinds you don’t plan on making. Britta and I usually make a weekend trip to Michaels, we use the excuse it’s “for the blog” but often times we leave with some candles and chocolate (their candles are THE BEST). Well, last weekend’s trip to our favorite craft store ended in this project! We tried another project using Mod Podge Dimensional Magic while back that was a huge fail. As soon as we saw this…
