From the blogger: "We inherited an old brass candlestick from my husband's grandparents. We used it for many years, in an awkward corner, as a decorative candle holder. Then we moved houses. It no longer had a use inside and so it sat gathering dust in the garage. After a few failed attempts to sell it online, I succumbed to the realization that this brass candlestick was meant to stay in the family. One day, I took it outside to the garden and gave it new life."
Estimated CostUnder $10
Time to CompleteUnder an hour
- Large, freestanding candlestick
- Exterior paint + brush
- Self-etching primer
- Decorative bowl
- Drill with appropriate drill bit
- Plants (real or artificial)
DIY Project Instructions
Since this candlestick was originally brass, spray with self-etching primer.
Once dry, do a light, dry brush technique with the exterior paint. This will make some of the gray of the self-etching primer to peak through.
You can find a decorative bowl at a local home goods store. In this case, it fit perfectly into the candle holder.
If filling the bowl with real plants, you will need to add drainage holes to the bowl. If the bowl is metal, you can use a metal drill bit.
If desired, paint the bowl the same as the candlestick.
Fill with soil (or landscape rocks) and plants.
