How to create a beautiful thrifted candle holders display on your holiday table and make them look like they’re a matching set…
Some people collect stamps, others collect coins…
I collect candle holders.
Weird? Not really…Especially when you see what they look like all together after they’ve been painted the same color!
Last minute shopping for my daughter’s teachers led me into Goodwill to search for unique pots that I could turn into a succulent garden for them.
I saw these pretty pair of pinecone taper holders and at $1.99 for the two I grabbed them.
The next morning I decided that pinecones needed to be painted silver.
So I painted them.
I loved how they turned out!
Then, I decided to round up ALL of my mismatched candle holders and spray paint them to match.
When I was finished and everything was dry I placed them all down the center of our dining room table, and the most beautiful thing happened…
My mismatched candle sticks and pillars all of a sudden became a lovely set of different sized, shaped and textured candle holders.
And just for fun…here’s what they look like at night with my martini rimmed votives spread around for extra sparkle….
So the moral of this story…
Next time you’re looking through someones junk at a yard sale or checking out your local thrift shop, grab a few candle holders.
It doesn’t matter if they match or not…as long as you paint them all the same color, you will have the most enchanting collection of thrifted candle holders around!
