~thrifty thursday~{candle holders}

Today's thrifty Thursday project is all about re-purposing.
Taking found objects and using them in a different way then originally intended.

This project started because of this candle holder:


I wanted some pieces to go with this one to make a grouping, so I started looking around my house.
I found this old chunky piece of wood and painted it with creamy white.


The next "candleholder" I literally rescued from the trash.
I don't even know what it started life out as, but I topped it with a dessert plate and added a candle~voila, I had my grouping.






I'm really loving using neutrals for fall decor this year.
It just feels really fresh.
Speaking of fresh, this Leila Lou candle is ah~mazing!
You can find it here.

The candle holder it sits on is from here.

*** updated to say that I bought my candle holder from the store. She doesn't carry it online, but you can order it by calling the store ***

SO GORGEOUS, the neutrals for fall. And the distressed effect on these neutrals is the crowning touch!

Melanie,
Your candle trio is lovely as it forms an understated Fall vignette. The green pumpkin/squash delights my eye with the tables greenery,
