Electrical Salvage Transformed
I love this! On one of our frequent trips to the Goodwill Outlet, I came across a box of dirty hardware and odds n’ ends. My eye immediately caught these babies:
Ok, not super pretty…but they were ceramic and they totally reminded me of candle-holders. So, into my shopping bag they went (besides, it’s not like it was a huge gamble at less than a buck a piece!)
Such a cinch! Now, time for some clean up…they looked a mess but it was super easy to make them look shiny and new with a rag and some glass cleaner. But, first I needed to make a trek to Restore, our local Habitat for Humanity thrift store…I was on a hunt for something that would hold a candle snug (cuz my ceramic pieces were just a bit too large for a traditional tapered candle). And guess what? I found more ceramic doo-hickies, so I was able to fidget and fiddle with several of the hardware pieces to find my solution. Oh happy day! My solution was so nice and tidy!
I hope you get a chance to try this super easy “craft.” Oh, and if you get one for Christmas, remember to act surprised 😉 .
