Sizzix Twist and Style Autumn Garland

Today I would like to share an Autumn Home Decor project that I made using the new Sizzix Twist & Style Tool.

When it comes to decorating, I like the glam look, but not the high-end prices. In fact, my friends will tell you that I am a very frugal shopper. Other people will say that I'm cheap. I love the pretty boutique-style candles, but let's face it...it's just a candle. So I bought a no-name candle that smells wonderful and added some Sizzix magic.
I cut the leaf from scrap cardstock using the Sizzix Bigz Spring Leaf Die. (It is one of my favorite dies!) I then painted it with the DecoArt Media paints. I love the way these paints mix. By adding a few drops of silver or gold, any color can become a rich, lustrous metallic. 

Rather than wrap the candle in ribbon or raffia, I used the Twist and Style Craft Tool to create a wire wrap candle garland. This tool works like magic! It twists individual strands into a decorative trim in seconds. You can twist wire, raffia, ribbon, fibers, and even fabric! I've used it to make a set of napkin rings a few months ago. A charm was all I needed to complete my Candle Garland.

I have arthritic hands and I never would've been able to make this without the Twist and Style Craft ToolIt's so easy to use that this entire project can be completed in minutes.

Thanks for letting me share!
