Before you put all your Christmas ornaments away...

Check out this easy Burlap Candlestick Topiary
  This was inspired by House of Smith's Napkin Snowball Craft, tutorial found here.

Supplies needed:
Christmas ornament or styrofoam ball
Burlap circles - about 1.5-2" diameter (doesn't have to be perfect circles)
Low temp glue gun
Pencil with eraser

Take the silicone and squeeze it around the inside rim of the candlestick. Insert the ornament with the "neck" going down into the candle stick. Allow to dry at least 3 hours.

Take a burlap circle and wrap it around the pencil eraser, place a small dot of hot glue on burlap and apply to ornament. Continue until covered. Easy as pie, umm...pie!

Since I already had the silicone out and some extra candlesticks, I decided to play around and glue a few pieces together. Take a look...

Now for that pie...
