DIY Retro Deer Christmas Candles with Craft Attitude and Mod Podge

DIY Retro Deer Christmas Candle with Craft Attitude and Mod Podge

We whipped up these easy DIY retro inspired candles with Craft Attitude and Mod Podge!  Craft Attitude is a printable film than can be applied to tons and tons of surfaces.  Here we used them on Dollar Store Candles.  The deer clip art is from on of my favorite sources….. The Graphics Fairy.  The diamond mesh trim is from my party supply shop and the velvet holly leaves are from my craft supply shop.
