Repurpose a Candle Holder

I have a little project to share today. I bought this candle holder at Hobby Lobby sometime ago and decided to jazz it up a little. First I glued a big nail in the hole in the top. step2


I used some red silk roses I already had. I like the fake rain drops. I pushed one set of leaves up next to the petals and cut off all but about an inch of the stem. I poked a foam ball into the nail and started pushing the roses in. I don’t know if it matters but I started at the top and worked my way around and down.



This is such an easy project and I love it. I do think it needs a bigger ball but it’s ok for now and I used all my roses anyway.  Because I didn’t glue the roses or the ball this can be changed out at anytime. Next time I may even add a candle in the center!
