stackable Tea light holdersI spray painted 2 cans and used chalk based paint on the other two.  After I waxed the chalk based cans, I taped off one and used Mod Podge Rocks Peel & Stick Stencils on the other and then I spray painted them with the gold spray paint. (Thanks Amy, for the stencils!)

Then I filled each one with coffee beans and added turquoise blue tea lights.

Do you know how amazing coffee beans smell when being warmed by tea lights??  Pretty amazing!
