Turn that Vase Upside Down!


Ready to add some new stylish candles holders to your decor? Ok, go get a bunch of those old vases that you have been keeping for years but don't know what to do with. How about the one that held the lovely roses that your husband bought for you on Valentine's Day in 1999? Now all you have to do is turn the vase up-side down, put a candle on top...and waa, laa - a new candle holder. Love it! 



Here are some vases I had sitting in my very messy, unorganized closet. I took them outside so you wouldn't see my closet mess.




And, here are my new stlylish candles!



For this one, I just stacked 2 smaller bowls that I found in my stash!



Try to look at the stuff you have with a new fresh approach. Use a creative eye. What other uses can you find for the things you already have?

I am following from Social Parade. I know it is a little after Friday.

I am a mom of 5+ (I keep taking in teenage boys...3 so far). I lost my 15 year old son 3 years ago in a tragic go-cart accident. I am trying to connect with other grieving mothers. Please feel free to follow and pass on to anyone you think would be interested in connecting with me.

Thanks!
