Thrift to Treasure



I finally finished my wall sconce project that I started HERE.  You can see how I started out with a plain decorative wood plaque and covered it in scrapbook paper.


After searching Goodwill for months I finally found this candle holder that I cut apart with a hacksaw, painted white and hot glued it to the back to make the sconce.


I’m linking to BNOP’s Metamorphosis Monday party………..

They turned out beautiful. I love them. Now you've also got the extra candle holders for another project.

The sconces are great! I love how you creatively used all of those items together - very pretty indeed.

Girl you're funny - what else have you been hack sawing? These turned out beautiful.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oh yes, I remember ~ they turned out really nice, Tammy!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Wow...I would never even think of doing that! They look nice.

I got a kick out of the hacksawing, too!
Great imagination

P.S. There is no close up of this because spray painting in the snow is not the best idea ! ;)
