Aren't these big brass lanterns cool?
I found this pair of pendant hanging lights at the thrift store for $5...last year.
The cords and wiring was torn, pulling apart and dangerous.
I didn't know what to do with them...so they sat.
Then they moved across the country...then they sat.
and that I really didn't need any additional lighting anyway! So,
I took them apart. That "tinted glass" was just thick plastic, so
that might be useful for something else!
I still have the light hardware...and could re-wire them someday
but probably wont.
So I took the top that normally screws onto the the light post
that goes down the center and just glued it on the top.
After dusting and cleaning them off of course!
I used a glass candlestick and set it inside with a FAKE wax
candle I got from the dollar store!
Have you seen them? Awesome, vanilla smelling wax and
a switch on the bottom to light it up!
$1 at the thrift store. The tall brass candle is from a yard sale.
I melted the candle to make it look awesome.
And my button pumpkin. Perfect for September to November!
Linking up to THESE parties this week!
