Pink Elephant

Pink Elephant I sell a variety of lovingly rehabbed furniture and handmade crafts! My name is Claire, and I have a passion for design and bringing the "wow" back to old or worn out furniture.

Through the Pink Elephant, I sell an eclectic mix of household items ranging from refurbished furniture to beautiful handmade crafts.

I decided to try my hand at making my own candle wreaths rather than buying the beautiful (but pricey) $25 ones I saw at the store. I needed three and just couldn't justify spending $75. I picked up some floral stem wires, faux greenery (on sale for 50% off at Hobby Lobby- woohoo!!!), and broke out my hot glue gun. First I wound two pieces of wire into a circle fitting on the top of the candle stick. Then I started winding and hot gluing pieces of greenery onto the ring, and that's it! Each ring took about fifteen minutes to make and it only cost me a total of $8! Feel free to peruse through the pics below to see the final product. 😄

Anyone else up burning the midnight oil? I'm getting my paint on (apparently on my hands, legs, hair, face, etc!) over here. Sometimes you just have to power through while the kiddos sleep!

Hello everyone! I know it's been a loooong time since I've shared anything with you! I've been knee deep in babies and life. 😄 I wanted to hop on here to show you a custom piece I just finished for a little girl's room using this Suzani fabric as inspiration. My daughter's name also begins with an A. I don't think they'll mind if I just go ahead and keep it, right? 😋

Merry Christmas!!!
