It seems like every week someone makes one!
I just HAPPENED to have the beginnings of my own right in my house, so I though, "Why the heck not?"
This candle/candlestick was given to me by my mother-in-law. It's a pretty good quality one, and I love the classic lines to it.
It dawned on me that I could make it into something that I love!
So I bought a wooden circle from Walmart ($1.50 I think?) and a large glass hurricane ($4.00).
BONUS: the lip of the wooden circle fits perfectly into the glass hurricane!!
The finial was already in my house. It's actually a set of two (curtain rod ends!) that I got at Menards on Clearance a while back. Didn't know what I would use them for, but I loved them!
Oh! FYI! I have a project to show you in a couple days that I used the other finial on!
Anyways, I primed and painted all the parts (except the glass of course!)
Then I sawed off the srew to the finial, epoxied that to my wooden circle, then epoxied the candlestick to the glass hurricane.
But what would I do with it?
I saw this post on Gail's Decorative Touch. She also made an apothecary jar. She filled it with her pooch's treats. So I can take no credit for that idea! It all goes to her!
This is mine:
