Fourth of July: DIY Washi Tape Planter Stakes {You'll Never Look At BBQ The Same Way Again!}

What do you get when you cross a bbq fork with a roll of washi tape?  Why, of course DIY Plant Stakes, silly!

What do you get when you cross a bbq fork with a roll of washi tape?
 Why, of course planter stakes, silly. 
Looking for some easy planter or garden decor?
Pick up some glass votive holders and BBQ forks from your local Dollar Store.
After wrapping the bases of the forks with some fun & colorful washi tape (find here)
adhere them to the bottoms of your glass candle holders with a dab of E-600 glue.
Once dry, place your stakes in your pots or gardens and
Instant outdoor decor.
Light the candles at night for a little ambiance {you'll have to imagine these lit at night because apparently taking pics in the dark of a dancing flame is harder than lassoing up a spider.}
I also recommend not leaving the candles out during the daytime unless you want a waxy hot mess on your hands, unless you're looking for a free paraffin treatment to soften up those digits then in that case, wax away my friend.

Don't mind that dead grass there in the background. We haven't had rain here since like 1982.

Wishing everyone a delightful 4th of July!!!

What an AWESOME idea!

Question about washi tape. I bought a few rolls. Today I saw a tutorial to make a washi tape banner and she ironed the tape in half. Do I have to do that with just applying the tape like onto a frame?
