Annie’s Creative Woman Kit-of-the-Month Club sends new DIY craft projects monthly! Each kit includes most of the items you’ll need to complete the project, plus easy-to-follow instructions. All you’ll need from home are common household items like glue and scissors! Some crafts you can expect from this subscription are painting, needlecrafts, beading, candle and soap making, mixed-media crafts, and more! It costs $19.99 a month, plus $5.95 postage and processing ($6.95 in Canada).
The kit itself was packed in plastic.
There’s a mini booklet that shows what the finished product is supposed to look like. This month, I’m making a Luminous Candleholder!
At the back, there’s also a photo of the materials included in the kit.
The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow. There are even photos as well as helpful hints, so you can hardly go wrong!
Everything in my box!
Here’s everything I need to create this project! Aside from the provided materials, I also grabbed some readily available items at home like paper towel, cotton swab, toothpick, cup, paper plate, glue, and a rubber band.
I appreciate that they included an insert to notify crafters and apologize about the mislabeled gel stain.
The materials include a wood base with grooves and the gel stain. Thanks to the notification, I can use the right tube for staining!
The kit also includes 4 acrylic sheets, a paintbrush, and green paint.
There is also the foliage artwork that will serve as a guide on designing the acrylic sheets.
For designing the acrylic sheets, I also received a black tube of liquid leading.
Lastly, here’s a flameless tealight candle. This candle is battery-operated.
I used some brown paper to cover my workspace. The first step is to stain the wood base using a paper towel. If you’d like to double coat it, you can do so!
While waiting for the base to dry, I worked on the acrylic sheets. I just placed the foliage artwork underneath the sheets and used the liquid leading to trace the artwork.
Carefully follow the pattern so you’ll have the design on the acrylic sheets. Mine is a little crooked, but it’s okay! You can also make your own design if you want to.
After letting the liquid leading dry, you can proceed with painting on the leaves. Use the paintbrush and the green paint included in the kit to fill the leaves with color.
Repeat the process on all the acrylic sheets and let them dry. Also, make sure to wash the paintbrush before advancing to the next step. I’m so excited to see the finished project!
On the opposite side of the acrylic sheet, spread a thin layer of clear sealer using the paintbrush. Do the same for all the acrylic sheets.
Squeeze some glue into the grooves of the base and stick the sheets in it facing outward. Brush some glue on the corners inside and secure it with a rubber band. Let the glue dry and remove the band.
If there’s any excess glue, you can wipe it off using a paper towel.
All that’s left to do is place the flameless tealight candle inside.
Here is what the finished project looked like! The light from the flameless candle looks lovely!
My design has a bit of an uneven liquid leading, but it still looks pretty, especially with the flameless candle on!
It can be easily transported and used as no cords are involved. You only have to deal with the batteries of the flameless candle.
This makes a cute night lamp for the bedroom!
The project is great and I love how the candleholder turned out! Annie’s Creative Woman Kit-of-the-Month Club provides everything needed for the project, from the materials to the step-by-step instructions. As I’m not familiar with liquid leading, it was a bit of a challenge but I still had so much fun. I think it’s a good way to spend my free time and I’m also happy to be able to try new art mediums I’ve never used before! If you are also into crafts, you can try this subscription to make sure that you never run out of new craft projects. The good news is that it’s ideal even for beginners!
