I found this old bottle capper for just three measly bucks. This well used...well loved metal piece measures 21" in it's current state but can stretch in length another 4" if I choose. Junk-items-of-size are the best, because they allow you to edit your decor and not crowd every surface of your home with a bazillion little junkies. (We all love junk, but you don't want your home to look "junky".)
I then purchased a new glass cylinder with candle for around $2.50 total at The Flower Factory. Cylinder vases can also be purchased at garage sales and thrift stores on any given day. They are everywhere.
And there you have it! A fabulous candle holder that really catches the eye! I placed it alongside an industrial bin holding our house wine and it looks right at home.
Wouldn't it look fantastic next to a bin of micro or home brew? Recap your beer if necessary. (And the capper works as a great candle snuffer too. Well, not really.)
As you can see, you can use just about anything as a candle holder. What kind of junk do you use for candles?
As always, take care and keep on junking!
