Let There Be Light!

Let there be light!

It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.  - Eleanor Roosevelt
All lit up!

I feel like every new project I do is my favorite one.  This one is no different.  I’ve been hinting at this for a while.  This one really can hardly even count as “making” something, it’s more like “assembling”.  Candles and candle holders are really surprisingly expensive, especially the pretty long-stemmed glass candle holders.  Don’t fret though, I have a less costly and equally beautiful solution for you.  I won’t pretend this is a totally novel idea; after I did this I saw that Real Simple magazine had done almost the exact same thing…..but I digress.   I found these really lovely little glasses at a thrift store for 50 cents each- I picked three different ones. They seem oddly small for wine glasses. Honestly, I don't really know what they are for.  Then, I got some small votive candles to put inside them. (1.50)  In case you’re counting, that’s a grand total of 3 dollars.   Wouldn’t this make a cute gift?  I don’t know where I will put mine yet, but I find them very charming.  
Now aren't they cute?
