What better way to change the look and feel of a room than with a pretty River Stone Candle Coaster? This simple craft is a beautiful decor piece for the home!
I’m a total smell person. That may sound like a strange statement, so let me explain. When I walk into a place and am greeted by a fresh, pleasant aroma, I instantly feel at ease and comfortable.
I’ve always wanted my home to be a welcoming place for others to visit and for my family to be. So I work hard to make it that place by carefully selecting each wall hanging and table centerpiece. I also pride myself in creating the perfect ambiance with amazing scents from The Atmosphere Collection™ Fine Home Fragrance by Glade®.
I’ve had countless guests to my home ask, “What is that amazing smell?” when I have my secret weapons-the N°2 Bright™ – Sweet Pea and Pear Jar Candle or the N°1 Enraptured™ – Jasmine and Cedarwood PlugIns® Scented Oils emitting their delightful scents.
I believe that wonderful aromas can really set the tone for the home by accentuating its style and complementing its decor. And that’s why it’s important that I keep the delicious aromas flowing!
I like to come up with eye-catching ways to make the jar candles a part of my decor scheme. So I put together this River Stone Candle Coaster that acts as a quirky yet fun statement piece in my living room! It really stands out on the dresser among my family photos and faux plants.
Smith’s is where I shop for all things yummy smelling!
And now I can’t wait to show you how to make this fun craft! It’s so easy. Here’s how.
Strong Adhesive (I used tacky glue, but E6000 or something similar would be great too)
Pencil and scissors
Start by finding a bowl or large cup that you can use to trace a circle onto the cork board. Use the jar candle to test how big you will need the circle to be.
Trace and cut out the circle. Arrange your river stones onto the cork board circle first to make sure you’ll like the pattern and fit of everything. I wanted mine to fit closely together. I sorted through mine to find the flattest ones and opted for a nice representation of the various colors. You can go for all one color tone if you’d like.
When you’re satisfied with how it looks, go ahead and glue each individual stone onto the cork board. It may be best to start on the outside and work your way in, in a circular motion. You’ll want enough glue that the pebbles will stay firm, but not too much that it will ooze out.
I just love the way it looks! It instantly made the room feel more warm and inviting and tied all my decor together. I’m especially enjoying the way my home smells now too!
