Adding Crystal Bling to a Broken Candleabra
I bought a candelabra on clearance at
’s years ago for less than $10. It had a nice old-world look to it, and I used in both of my apartments and our last home. The glass candle holders broke during our last move, and I have been trying to think of a way to utilize it in our new home. Kirkland
I thought that if I added a little bling to it, I could use it in our master bedroom,so I bought some jewelry crystals at Hobby Lobby and added them to the candelabra.
Since the glass candle part was broken, the crystals just made it pretty, not practical.....but then I found these uniquely sized candle holders at Old Time Potter for $1.99 each, and I thought they would actually work for this project. When I got them home, I realized they weren't the perfect fit, but they would still work for what I needed.
I really like this updated look, and I think it really works in our bedroom. So next time you're thinking you need to get rid of something, maybe you just need to update it with a little bit of bling;)
