Unless you are me. Let me explain a little. I had this:
So I wanted it to be this
Easy right? So simple. Just slap some glue on and presto!
Okay so that's what I did.
Everything looks good. Everything is going great.
I just have to wait 2 to 4 hours and I have beautiful candles.
So after 2 hours or so I take off my "weights" and set up my beautiful candles in their new homes.
Nice right? They look great. I did it. And it was cheap. The candle sticks came from the Dollar Store and the candles are actually Paula Dean (seriously she has everything) candles that I had around the house. I am feeling great. I am ready to make a new blog post. I am patting myself on the back.
Until...I woke up this morning and saw this
Glue all over the candle sticks. Running all down the side. Oh..maybe I used too much. Maybe it was me and not you Gorilla glue. Or maybe it was you. I don't know. One more look at my fail
Will I ever learn to like you Gorilla glue? Everyone L-O-V-E-S you so much. Anyone out there who knows what they are doing? Tips? Help?
I ended up scraping all the glue off with a knife and setting them back in their spots. I still feel bad though, how did I mess up Gorilla glue? I am not giving up on you though. I will try again! And side note: It is holding VERY strong.
So since this project was Dollar Store cheap I am linking up to these:
Hopefully anyone who tries this project will get it right :)
