Candlestick Pilgrims- Sassy Sanctuary

Hello WYLTC readers!  Krystal from Sassy Sanctuary here today.  Hasn't this week been fun?!  I've loved all the turkeys so much and totally want one of each!  But I'm here to actually break the mold and share a set of pilgrims to go with all those turkeys. :)

So, do you guys remember the candlestick rabbits we all made waaaaay back in the beginning of WYLTC?  Well, I've really loved my rabbits so I decided to take a spin on those and make some candlestick pilgrims.  They turned out pretty cute and were SO easy!  (Easy is a requirement for me lately.)


All the supplies were purchased at Micheals.  From the wood section you will need two candle sticks, two doll heads, a round disk, and a napkin ring.  Then grab some paint and a sheet of white craft foam.


First thing you need to do is get rid of the gold thing that holds the candle.  I just used a butter knife and bent it all down inside the candlestick.


Then you can hot glue all the pieces together.  In hind sight, I would have painted everything and then glued it all together, but you can do it either way.


Once they are all painted you can cut and glue on little collars and a brim for the bonnet out of the craft foam.  They look something like this.


And that's it.  I think I had them both done in under an hour.


They sure make a cute addition to my Thanksgiving display!


I sure hope you all enjoyed this weeks crafty inspriation and I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving holiday!!

Thanks for reading!

Well, these are really very much amazing and eye catching. These are so lovely to the eyes and can enhance any place’s beauty with great percentage. I personally love using crafted items at my place for decoration especially wooden handicrafts, and I loved these very much as well.

I love the pilgrims. I was browsing pinterest looking for ideas for a possible craft night. Do you have a tutorial on how to make the pumpkins on your mantle?
