Im in love with my new candleholder...!
This rusty part is from an abandoned piece of farm equipment - it had an interesting shape and looked like a promising save to me.  I love decorating with old farm machinery parts...the rustier the better, in my opinion...!
The fun metal clock faces were a purchase from Kathy, a/k/a Sylvias Vintage Daughter!  I was excited when I realized they would be the perfect addition to this repurpose.  Thanks, Kathy!
The clock faces work well as a base for the candles.
As each season arrives itll be fun changing this out...
Im in love with my new candleholder...!
