Frugal Friday

Here's a perfect project for a Frugal Friday Party: an inexpensive and chic candle holder so easy to make that you can even have a couple ready for tonight's dinner...

An empty wine bottle (say yes! to recycling)...vintage music sheet for a graphic element, burlap and raffia for texture and shells for a summery touch...

...White candle wax adds romance...

How cool will a couple of these will be on your next gathering table?...
Let us respond: very cool!!!!!

And that's not all...
Once we were done with this project, we decided that the leftover music sheets were just too pretty to keep in a drawer and very deserving of also being displayed...
What do you think?....

Just an empty can of tomatoes filled with rolled sheets...looking good next to vintage silverware...

...and the cute label makes it very clear who this sweet display belongs to...


Now, before digging in your trash can and coming up with great display ideas, hurry up and visit all the creative minds participating in Wendy's Frugal Friday Party at "The Shabby Nest"

Have a great week end and come back soon, we love having you over!
XOXO

OK. This is absolutely awesome on so many levels. My hubby is always telling me how much he likes candles in bottles. There's just something about the wax dripping down the sides that appeals to him. But, boy you really cranked it up a notch! You hooked me with the sheet music! Then you reeled me in with the shells. Love, love, love this!
