Well, remember the vase and candle stick holder I got yesterday thrifting?

 I made this!

While I was at it, I had this vase from a thrift store, and this wood circle and topper from Michaels.

I made this.


I am working on something else as well, but the paint is not dry yet! You will just have to wait and see!

I am going to link it up to:


  1. love it! i have the same candle sticks i haven't found a place to put them yet though.

  2. oh my gosh! We had the same idea in mind with the balls and bells, most likely purchased at the same place!
    I'll be putting my photos up tonight. I didn't do the candle stick on the bottom of the vase, I like your idea- to raise it!
    I had to go out the other day and get more items (which was when I chose the bells) because one 15 pack of the balls filled it up 3/4 of the way. That's when I decided on the bells- for a different contrast color in it to blend with everything out on the table, LOL!
    My balls are red and gold, and the bells are silver... you know- for "Silver Bells" --I bought the matte and shiney ones!

    I stumbled across your blog by way of someone elses last week, and stayed up til the early morning reading all of your posts!
    Thank you!

    PS How much did you get your vase for?
