While I was in Texas, Bob temporarily hung a sign in our bathroom that states 'Captain's Quarters'. He purchased the sign at a flea market type place in Bourbon MO earlier this year with the intention of hanging the appropriate sign (He is a boat Captain) in his Man Cave once it is finished - which will not be until we've moved me completely out of the space into the new studio. I kind of like the sign hanging in the bathroom and the sea/ beachy theme already matches the white/ seafoam blue-green color scheme. But I decided we needed something more than a sign to carry the theme through.

On a wander through Walmart craft department the idea struck me to make a new candle piece... one without a real candle. I know there are suppose to be ways to clean melted wax out of those jars but the glass is so fragil. So I opted for a 'pretend' (I disklike the word fake  hehe)  That day I purchased the sea shells and the 2 glass containers.

While my sister-in-law, Rhonda was here, we made a trip to Hobby Lobby where I bought the sand and the seashells. I wasn't in the candle shopping vein then... just crafting. When Bob and I went back a couple weeks later I found THIS blue L.E.D Flameless candle. The Electronic Flickering can be set to ON or has a TIMER and runs on 3 AAA batteries. I liked this one because of the timer and the batteries are easy to acquire and less expensive than the button batteries.

The completed project came out like this:

Not enough light to read by but with all the other lights out in the bathroom, the soft glowing flicker is very relaxing. 

Oh, and if you think I'm missing a scent, I use the night light style wax melt pots so I can pick the scent. I usually use an Ocean Breeze or Clean Linen for the bathroom.

Wishing you Creative Blessings on your week!

  1. What a great idea! And I love the color! It could go into my sea shell themed bathroom!
