I’m back with another DIY project using gold thumb tacks. Today’s project is super easy, cute,  affordable—best combo!


All you need is one (or a few) pillar candles and gold thumb tacks. That’s it.


Take your candle and start sticking the tacks in whatever pattern you prefer. I love the scallop look that the overlapping tacks create. So on trend.

On one candle I created the “dipped” look, and not he other I created a simple linear look. Next one I’m going to do will cover the entire candle.


They’re so pretty I don’t wanna burn ’em too long. 🙂


Stay tuned tomorrow for my last DIY thumb tack project. And you can see yesterday’s canvas art project by clicking here.

PS. Have you used thumbtacks in any of your DIY projects? I’d love to see what you’ve done, so share them with me via Instagram or Facebook.
