Not only are all of these sellers on Etsy, but they're new and awaiting their first sale. As a seller I know how exciting your first sale is. You never forget it! So I encourage all of my readers to go and check out all of these shops and hopefully help them make that first sale! Best of luck to all of you!

Hi everyone! Ok, so my new goal for my blog is to bring you more productive post. I don't want this blog to be consumed by my Etsy shop or my new items. So here goes! I made the cutest fabric bottom crystal candlesticks last night. These candlesticks are easy and inexpensive to make. Give them as gifts for birthdays, Christmas, housewarming's, hostess gifts, or for any other occasion.
Here's what you'll need:
1. Modge Podge
2. Crystal or glass candlestick
3. Fabric, just enough to cover the bottom so this is great for using scraps. You could also use pretty papers as well.
4.Pen or something for tracing
6. Sponge brush
First, you're going to start by tracing around the bottom of the candlestick on the fabric. Set your candlestick on top of the design you want and using your pen trace around the bottom until you have a complete circle.
Using your scissors cut out your circle.
Now you are going to turn your candlestick bottom up. Dab the tip of your sponge brush with modge podge and gently apply the modge podge to the bottom rim of the candle stick, make sure you've covered the whole rim. *If your candlestick has a solid base apply the modge podge all over.
You are now ready to place your fabric on the bottom of the candlestick. Lay your fabric circle with the patterned side facing up. Turn your candlestick over and gently place it on the fabric. Be sure to make sure fabric is touching the entire rim. At this point you may need to gently tug the fabric to each side to make sure it's nice and tight.
Finally, apply modge podge all over your fabric using your sponge brush. Don't be scared, lather it on nicely! Place your candlestick bottom up again until it is dry. Once dry you are good to go!
Here's what your finished product should look like! Sorry the pics aren't the BEST, but it is hard to photograph glass, lol. I hope everyone enjoyed this. This would also be a great craft project to do with kids.
Later this week, we will be pulling out the ghost and goblins and giving you some great Halloween tips for decorating, food, and more!
