Here's one of my latest projects on the Smoothfoam™ blog. It's a pair of candlesticks! Don't they look like a turned wood spindle? But they are mostly Smoothfoam™ with a wood plaque base, a wood circle on top and bamboo rings in between the balls!
And, you don't have to top them with battery-powered candles. Add a small pumpkin, an ornament or an angel on top. Of course, they aren't sturdy or fireproof enough for real candles, so just battery-operated candles please!
There's so much you can do with these. Have fun creating your own version! You can find Smoothfoam™ in most large craft stores. For all the instructions, go to the Smoothfoam blog.
