Instructions

1. In a bucket, combine two shades of similar-color fabric dye, following the package instructions. Set wood candlesticks in the dye for a few minutes. The dye will creep up the wood for an ombré effect. 

2. Remove the candlesticks from the dye, and turn them upside down. Let dry for 24 hours.
