Turn an old wedding candelabra into a sweet DIY candle holder
Hope you are having a great day. This project will inspire you to look for things you can take apart and put together a little differently. I found these old wedding candelabras on the curb and slammed the brakes to load them up. I decided taking them apart was the best plan of attack to reuse these in new way for a cottage style candle holder.
I pulled some of my favorite DIY material out of the pile and went to work. If you are new here I have a stash of vintage fence pickets that I use ALL THE TIME. You can buy new pickets and paint them for a similar look. (I’ll link a few other fence picket ideas below for you to check out!)
After I took the candelabra apart I wash it really good then put the sweet little flowers back together again. ( I also made this from the candelabra flowers!) All I had to do was get a short screw with a head fat enough to cover the base hole and I screwed the flowers to the picket. Done!
It looks cute with candles in it or not. Perfect for a coffee table, nightstand or simple centerpiece. When you see something that catches your eye just think about how the parts and pieces could come apart and go back together in a more useful way. You will be so thrilled with what your creative mind comes up with! Be sure to let me know what you come up with – I love to see your projects. Are you a part of the Make it New Facebook group?
