TRASH TO TREASURE
I have been so uncreative lately and it was really bothering me! I love how my latest project turned out as I think I can use it in multiple settings.
I hosted Thanksgiving again this year and needed a table centerpiece. I didn't want to spend alot of money so I started scouring the thrift stores around town. I bought every ugly brass candlestick holder I could find. I actually spend more than I wanted for them. They ranged anywhere from $1-3. I got them all home and this is what I had:
Just a modge podge of ugliness. I primed and painted them all a metallic color and here is what they looked like on my table:
So I scattered my little tray with leaves and baby pumpkins and grouped all of the candles together. This same arrangement is on my dining room table right now but I changed it a little:
I put fake snow and silver pine cones around the candlesticks. You could do anything with this. It may look pretty grouped together on the mantel too? I'll try that next!
