Do YOu Have ONE of THese?

I have a question, do you have one of these? I was wondering...... I do alot of that..lol.....
if we could "redo" them a little?
I want to put one in my living room, on the barnwood shelf, or on the tv armoire. They just don't look right, being all new and everything. Ayone got any suggestions of how to age them? Have you tried changing them? I don't want to just add a piece of homespun.......
maybe a label? or printed velium?
It has got to be something so you can still see the flicker through.
I love these candles because you can change the scents with different refills..
I just want a different look. :)
You don't have one? You can get a $3.00 off coupon HERE .
The flameless candles are $4.97 at Walmart- after coupon your cost would be $1.97. :)


  1. Thanks for the coupon link! I need a couple of these!
    You're right ~ they need a little something!
    Hmmmmm! Thinking.....

  2. I have seen these but never picked any up. Is there anyway you can grunge up the sides maybe with a stain to make it look old? We love candles and I think I already have some coupons. I may have to pick up a few for the new house.

    Let us know what you end up doing.

    Take care,

  3. Thank you for the link for a coupon.. you could grunge them up a little by doing the technique where you coat it with mod podge and then roll them in cinnamon and then spray clear sealer over them. It will give them a rusted/grunge look. When I first heard of doing this I didnt' think it would work but it does. Just a thought.


  4. I wish I had a colored printer cartridge right now! Dang it! I haven't seen the AirWick ones yet. Glade has had theirs for a long time but I just can't bring myself to pay that price! It's crazy what they charge for these things!

    You would have to do something simple so you could still see the flame. What about white glue and a light dusting of cinnamon?

  5. Hiya Kim!
    thanks for the coupon!
    I don't have these...
    I do have some other flameless candles tho, and they arent' prim either!
    I took some stained up cheese cloth and sorta warpped it and tied it with ole twine, and added a prim tag... that helps!
    I like the label idea ;)

    Have a wonderful week.

  6. Hi Kim, I think that putting a primitive label on it and distressing the outside with paint could work.
    I just noticed you are from Cambridge. I was born and raised in Zanesville. We were practically neighbors! LOL. Have a great day. God bless, Jamie

  7. I did a tutorial not long ago on making flicker candles...but you can do the same technique on the outside of this candle...I have on one of mine!...here it is....


  8. Those are some great suggestions that you are getting!
    Let us know which one you decide to do.
    Thanks for the coupon link...I am going to pick me up one and wait to see what you do with yours first! LOL

  9. Thanks for the coupon link. I am just a beginner in this primitive stuff so is lace acceptable?

  10. Thank you for the coupon, maybe making your own small label on the front.

  11. What if you brushed the outside with some glue and then rolled it in some cinnamon? Some vellum would work too.

  12. I know you will come up with something fabulous- you always do!

  13. Hi Kim!

    I have the answer to this in my posts...somewhere! I bought two WONDERFUL battery operated candles, and I tied a piece of Homespun around them to take them down a notch from that whole Contemporary/Modern look, and it really could be done on these, too.
    I don't like that I have to plug this up, so it gets limited to someplace else, so I need to get more of the ones I have, and I also didn't think they smelled all that well...not for the price...I use the plug-in scenters, which seem to work far better than this "candle"! Hehehe...
    Love your new Blog Look!!! Great choice!
