I went to an all town garage sale and found a bunch of fun candle holders to upcycle into solar light creations!
Here is the first candelabra that I was excited to work with and just in time for fall. This candle holder was $4!
I used Folk Art Treasure Gold to paint the stem, and I used Copper to paint the leaves. I let that dry after painting.
I put Super Glue into the base of the candle holders, pulled solar lights off their bases, and placed them into the candle holder.
I let it dry completely and love how it turned out.
Here’s a picture of it lit up at night.
Here is the next set of candle holders I picked up. I already had 3 glass lamp shades on hand that I was trying to figure out what to do with.
I Superglued the glass lamp shades to the top of the candle holders and let that dry.
I pulled solar lights off their base (I got these from Walmart) and placed them into the glass shades.
I love how they remind me of flowers and they are currently lighting my front porch.
Here’s a look at them lit up in the evening.
Here’s my last candle holder. It’s really big, beautiful, and heavy.
I pulled apart 3 Walmart solar lights from their bases and placed them into the candle holder for a perfect fit.
Here’s the completed solar light and it’s on my back patio to create ambiance.
