I set aside this copper cup and plate from when we had the new counter made a couple of months ago (during the massive de-cluttering session following that) when we decided what goes to charity and what stays. They looked pretty ancient (and completely useless for drinking out of).
I also found a cup and plate that used to be from a set, but I have no idea where the rest of them are (probably got broken over the years).
So I figured I’d better hold on to them and see if I can come up with something interesting.
And what do you know? I did come up with something ;)
Vintage looking candle holders
old (looking) cup and plate – I used copper and porcelain ones
glass candle holder (optional)
Glue your cup to the plate with hot glue.
Optionally add a glass candle holder (I had at one at home so added it since it was the perfect size for the copper cup)
Add a candle that you like best and voilá – you have your own vintage looking candle holders.
I still have a couple of ideas for making candle holders out of stuff laying around the house, so stay tuned ;)
