Monogrammed Candle - PB knock off

Pottery Barn has a beautiful white jar candle with a monogrammed silver metal top. It is simple, classy and (in my opinion) overpriced at $25. I might add for those of us in Canada, it is $32 for some reason. Its description proudly states the letters are hand painted, but isn't everything we do in the blogging world hand made?  I will admit my knock off would not win in a face to face match up, but I think mine isn't to shabby by itself.

I used Glade "Fragrance Collection" candles that I had kicking around for ages. Just to add to how frugal this is, I will admit I got the candles for free a while back with coupons :) .
I was shocked because the label peeled off like it was meant to be gone. Why did I leave that on for so long?
Using my handy dandy Cricut (you can also use letters from the Dollar Store) I cut out vinyl letters (you can use contact paper too). I cut a 'K' for me and a 'W' as a gift. I personally like the font of the W better so the K might be done again.
I stuck the vinyl letters on the metalish lid and that was it. Craft done. It took me longer to take the after pictures than it did for the entire craft. Pathetic :)
I think this is going to be added to my 'to make people for Christmas' list on Pinterest.

What do you think?

  1. Not having a Cricut, how would I use contact paper? (I'm also off to the dollar store to check out their letters you mentioned!)

  2. Ok, at first I thought the one on the bottom was yours and the top was thiers. I like yours better! Also, thiers looks like a juice can circle with a monogrm on it lol
