Coffee Bean Candle - A Dollar Store Craft

 I am SO excited to be blogging again - especially with my sister!
Everything is more fun with your sister, right?!
I wanted to start off by sharing a simple craft with you.
It's a coffee bean candle!
 I have been waiting a long time to make this candle! My friend made one & had it on display in her store & I thought it was genius!! If you love the smell of coffee, this is a must try!
It's basically a vase, loaded with coffee beans & has a candle burning in the center.
The candle warms the beans enough to fill the room with a delicious COFFEE scent! You can't go wrong...unless you hate coffee...but if that's the case maybe there's something wrong with YOU ;)
just kidding!

Supplies & Cost
Glass Vase - $4
Ribbon - Free/Scrap (I should've ironed it...)
Candle $1
Kroger French Vanilla Coffee Beans $6
Total Cost: $11.00 

(That's a cheap & thoughtful gift right there!!)



*I'm not only excited to be blogging again, but I'm really excited to be connected with other bloggers & partying again too! I'm sharing this craft at these linky parties*
