Update a Glass Vase with a Woven Placemat

seagrass vase

Jennifer from Decorated Chaos loved the look of Ballard’s Seagrass Hurricanes for summer. While she wanted them badly, this thrifty chick wasn’t about to dish out an exorbitant amount of money for one! Instead, Jennifer gathered a thrifted set of seagrass placemats and some glass cylinders and made her own beachy vase and candle holder. [...Read More]

Flower Cake Stand

What do you get when you combine a candle holder, a cake pan, and silk flowers from the Goodwill? A super cheap, designer-inspired cake stand perfect for displaying delectable desserts! Morena over at Morena’s Corner made this easy peasy dessert stand by simply gluing together her three items and then spray painting them for a uniform finish. The flowers are beautiful for Mother’s Day, but you could customize your stand for any occasion by using theme-appropriate items. Think rattles for a baby shower, toys for a kids birthday party…

Candle Pillar Stand

While strolling the aisles of Target, Beth from B & B Build a Better Life found a cute candle stand designed to hold an arrangement of pillars. Beth loved the concept, and even though the price wasn’t too shabby, she knew she could make something even better and cheaper. Off to ReStore she went, and the results are fabulous!

Hurricane with Rope Pedestal

Sometimes a simple flip or snip can give your old décor a whole new look. That was the case with this candle holder that Jeanette from Homa Style created by turning a glass dome she already owned upside down. She placed it atop a rope-wrapped vase with a dab of hot glue so it can easily transition back to a dome when Jeanette’s ready to mix it up again.

Beaded Easter Candle Holders

Becky from Posh Pink Giraffe shares my love for repurposing trash and recyclable items. She finally found a use for all the caps she’d been saving from her Pillsbury roll containers in these beaded votive holders. The caps make a great platform for the candles to rest on and provide the base for the pipe cleaner and bead framework. Becky’s candle holders have all the sparkle and luster of her Pottery Barn inspiration without the cost!

Terra from Mama Says Sew added some holiday flair to glass hurricanes from the thrift store with silver spray paint. I am loving me some metallics this year, and, of course, think you can never go wrong with a thrift store find and some spray paint {wink}!

Indian Corn Candle Holder

Liz of Infuse with Liz was inspired to create a pretty Indian corn candle centerpiece like one she spied in Pottery Barn’s catalog. Attaching the corn to the glass bowl proved a little troublesome, but in the end Liz pulled it all together… literally… with some twine {wink}. You can leave your corn au natural like Liz did or glam it up with gold paint like PB’s version.

This year Pottery Barn has some fabulous skull votive holders in their Halloween décor line. Problem is the price tag…they’re $9.50 each! Fortunately, Monica of Monica Wants It has a DIY version that is super easy and inexpensive. Plus, Monica’s votives go beyond the basic black with pretty damask and Moroccan patterns. Who says skulls can’t be stylish {wink}?
