Candle Container as VaseNovember 12, 2013
When the world hands you a bunch of empty glass candle containers, make vases out of them. Such was the case yesterday when I was in need of a bunch of short little vases, but did not want to use just normal clear drinking glasses. TPS had cut back all of our scented geraniums out on the island and I had all these beautiful stems and leaves to play with. We also have quite a collection of old Diptyque glasses that we store in the shed. I just like the way they look all massed together. All cleaned out and sparkly. We had yet to use them for anything other than visual pleasure. Now was the time. So many glass candle containers are quite fetching, it seems a shame to just toss them. Use them to hold pencils on your desk, cotton balls in your medicine cabinet, or use as water glasses. I like to think of it as stylish recycling.
