We've probably all seen old glass insulators at garage sales. The aqua glass color is beautiful and the shapes are interesting but what do you do with them once you've collected a few?

I had thrifted a little wire garden basket that was designed to hold two small flower pots. I placed two insulators upside-down in the basket and placed flameless tea lights inside.

Another idea might be to fill the insulators with candle wax and a wick to turn them into real candles. The aqua glass color and unique shape make a beautiful candle holder.
