Striped Candle Cubes

frogtapecandles6 frogtapecandles1 frogtapecandles11 frogtapecandles2 frogtapecandles5 frogtapecandles13We had a ton of fun creating these candle cubes made from wood scraps that we had left over from a previous table project. Everything gets saved around the Knack shop and workshop {especially wood scraps!} and when we were trying to decide what projects to make for the FrogTape® post this month, these candle cubes came to mind. It has been a couple of years since we have made any candle holders, and these were created with a lot more detail than in the past. Candle cubes are perfect for gift giving, and summer entertaining…and are SUPER easy on the budget! An 8 x 4 x 4 fence post is about $8… and depending on the varying sized cubes you create….you can make about 20 cubes per post! Woo Hoo! You can create away, and come up with so many interesting patterns.

My full tutorial on how to make these colorful cubes will be up on the FrogTape® blog Wednesday May 21st, so be on the lookout for that! {I will try to remind you!} We have another project up our sleeve for this month as well, and it involves walls….so we can’t wait to show you that one!

Speaking of projects…….FrogTape® is running a contest promotion right now called Earn Your Stripes! To enter, you will need to create a project using FrogTape… showing before, during and after shots… and get your submission in by July 1st. Every entry will receive a roll of shape tape {which is totally cool}, but the GRAND PRIZE is $ 5,000.00 you guys!! {who couldn’t use a little bit of that?!} So get on it, and create an awesome project using FrogTape! The official rules are here, the most FAQ’s are here, and the entry link and further info are here!

Hope you have had a great start to your week!
