Here’s a quick and fun project that yields something nice enough for gifting and won’t cost an arm and a leg -and just in time for the holidays, too!
The votive candle holder here is made from 4 pieces gathere at the local thrift store”
1 champagne glass, inverted
1 salt cellar or anything squarish
1 small tubular vase (preferably with color)
1 votive candle holder.
1 tube of Plumbers Goop (purple or magenta stripes)
Directions: stack and glue. Let the glue dry for 24 hours between adding pieces. Watch for sliding.
Because thrift stores are such treasure troves of all kinds of pieces, you can readily see the potential for a plethora of candleholders, perhaps 12 or so for candle light soaks in the tub with a good book and great smelling infusion or lavendar epson salts. Use 1 or 2 to drink wine by on a rainy winter evening (when it will be dark thank to the time change. Have I mentioned I hate the time change?). Buy scented votives for spice holiday envirenmnent creations.
