Dollar Tree ceramic finials

Not sure if they will be restocking these this year or not.  I bought mine last year, but have seen a few left at some of our local Dollar Trees. 

On the left, as purchased.  Middle, painted antique white (2 coats of water based acrylic craft paint) And on the right,  finished off with Ralph Lauren tobacco glaze.

You can also make different shapes and sizes of them by gluing (with e-6000) them to the top of lots of other things.   For ‘shiney’ surfaces (like these glazed ceramic bowls) I spray painted with FLAT black paint before painting white; otherwise your craft paint won’t stick.

Old wood bowls work too!

And these little flower pots I just found at DT work for the round finials.

The above round was glued to a ceramic pillar candle holder from DT.  Tall wood pillar candle holders work well too!

But I decided to use the ones I have on hand for little birds.  DT had some darling little birds last year.  I bought and used and SOLD a lot of them!  These birds I bought at Craft Warehouse after I couldn’t find them anymore at DT.

I had ONE of the little DT birds left.  Glued him atop a tall taper candle holder.

Another unique wood pillar holder on the left, and a hollow bamboo vase on the right.

  1. I absolutely LOVE these! Brilliant ideas for my Victorian-Gothic inspired dining room and Halloween decor. Thanks so much for sharing. I now need to be on the looking for wooden finials….! Sue x
