Pottery Barn Dupe Summer Candle DIY

Embrace the summer season with stylish decor inspired by Pottery Barn – without the steep prices! You can easily recreate this sophisticated, summer inspired decor without spending a whole ton o’ cash.

Let’s get started DIYing…

First steps

To start this DIY you are going to need a white candle in a clear glass container. This can be any size, and any scent. Ikea has this one for under $10 and it is ideal for this DIY because it is frosted which just adds to the overall look.

Laying down the foundation

Begin by selecting a rich navy blue chalk paint and a soft, fluffy stencil brush. Then carefully apply the chalk paint to the lower section of your candle holder, creating an effect much like that of gently lapping waves.

Your aim? To evoke the calming essence of the ocean right in your own home.

Add some dimension

Next, seize a novel stencilling brush, and bring to play some enticing teal chalk paint – I used the Antique Aqua from ArtMinds. Use the stencilling brush to dab some of that tranquil teal hue over the navy blue base.

Concentrate more on the centre and lower areas, but remember, there’s no fixed rule, your creativity knows no bounds. You are aiming to create a picturesque wave-like visual that conjures up your sense of being by the ocean.

Interweave the two hues, lightly layering on a bit more of that navy blue to mellow the vibrant teal. Allow this to dry completely before going on to the next step.

Blending it all together

Grab your Mod Podge and the third stencil brush. Now, thoughtfully apply the Mod Podge to the base of your candle holder, creating a spontaneous design. This process will partially cover the teal, but will still allow the teal and midnight blue to stand out.

Adding a touch of texture

You’ll need that white vase filler sand now. Sprinkle it to coat the Mod Podge, shaking off the excess.

Add the Mod Podge to the base, and extend it a bit to the top of the blue “waves”. You’re using the white sand to create a look that echos the frothy white caps of a wave.

The finishing touch

For the finishing touch, I opted for FolkArt’s Select Seal.

NOTE: Despite my thorough search, I couldn’t find any explicit warning about its flammability, so proceed with caution.

Apply the spray to the candles entirety, ensuring that the seal coated the candle evenly and will hold the sand in place.

To prevent any residual seal spray on the bottom, gently wipe away any excess using a damp rag. Then lifting the candle, clean any possible seal drop on the glass with the same cloth.

The final looks

Their Version

Pottery Barn may ask you to shell out anywhere from $30 to $100 for these items.
