We've all seen them at thrift stores - outdated wood candle holders.
I normally buy them, when I find them for a really good price
and just put them in my stash until inspiration strikes.
When I ran across these vintage jello molds at a garage sale
I, kindof, had a plan for them.
It involved some of the candle holders from my stash.
You can click here to see another project using thrifted candle holders.
I chose three candle holders from my stash to use as pedestal bases for each tin.
I sanded, painted, distressed and waxed each candle holder.
Then I found the center of each tin, marked it and drilled a small hole into each one.
Then, using long wood screws, I screwed the tins onto the bases.
The two larger tins are jello molds that were Made in Germany
and the smaller tin is a fluted tart tin, I believe.
Last year I made a similar project using smaller jello molds that you can see here.
I'm really liking the patina on the tins matched with the shabby bases.
They make perfect candle holders.
Of course, they can be used to display other things too,
like seasonal items - pumpkins, vintage ornaments, nests and eggs.
What would you use them for?
(P.S. - they are available in the shop here.)
'til next time,
