Spring Re-Purpose for Thrift Shop Candle Holders

I am dreaming of spring, so I decided to makeover these three thrift shop, black metal, candle holders with spring in mind.


After cleaning them up, I painted them with two coats of Dutch Boy Chalky Finish Paint in Antiquated Lace.  Next I wet distressed the chalk paint with a damp rag, mostly on the edges, and sprayed on an acrylic sealer from Krylon.

 No, they are not upside down.

The candle holders are now bird's nest holders.  The nests fit perfectly and are at three different heights for more interest.  How about that top bird's nest?  It's a new purchase from the company MeraVic.  It's a little spendy but I can't find everything at the thrift shop!

  1. Love how you used the bird nest on the candle holders. I love decorating with birds and bird nests and need to get busy making my mantel up for Spring. I am thinking bird nests.

  4. Really cute. You could put them right side up. I would think the nests would sit well in the little bowl tops. But I like the way you think. I wouldn't have been that clever.
