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.

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

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 ! ;)
