Update I am linking to Reinvented for Trash To Treasure Tuesday!I picked these candle sticks up at the local thrift store about a month ago. Usually I would not want to spend $11 on candle sticks but I saw their potential. Hey, they even had potential I did not see.
Better in Black?? While I was spray painting I noticed that there were holes on the tips of the leaf? thingies?? (that would be the potential I did not see) Okay have no Idea what they are but there were holes on them and I thought OH! Great for crystals! Being Cheap, I was appalled at the prices at the Craft store on the teardrop type so I went with a more cost effective route.
these were $3.99 for a whole bunch and I put them together small big small and attached them to the holes.
Then I noticed on the small candle stick 2 Leaf thingies were broken. I thought
Be still my heart you mean these things I bought were broken!! Oh well they were cheap. I proceeded to get my glue gun then I thought that takes too much time. So I grabbed a glue stick and the lighter thing my DH uses for the fire. I know it is sounding scary but no need to cover your eyes or call the fire dept. I just glued the crystals to the broken parts.
I am very happy with the finished project. What? you say there were three candle holders? Yes there still are I just was so excited to blog about this I only did 2. So now I am off the finish the third.
