Everything goes better with candlelight! I just purchased some inexpensive votives ay Michaels, slipped them in the cone holder, and there you have it!
Help, I have holes that I need filled up!
Cheap, cheap, cheap! And no, were not talking little chicks here! Little empty votive holders at 99 cents each hold your jewels.
Just look at those little lovlies!
OK, were actually going to showcase the daisies this time! Inexpensive vases slipped into the holes of the cone holder filled with daisies make for a happy, pappy floral arrangement.
I added pebbles of green to the vases for added interest.
In the kitchen for condiments, perhaps? Why not?!
Shes pulling an all nighter in the office. I wonder where she gets that from? The junk doesnt fall too far from the tree!
A hole and a cup for every little thing. Now thats what I call efficient! Are there other options for this cone holder? Absolutely! The list could go on and on. How about a photo holder for instance? Can you think of any other uses. Let me know!!

As you probably know by now, I love to change things up...constantly. I think the best-in-show of junkables are those pieces that are multi-taskers. This little ice cream cone holder is one such piece. So go ahead, pick another daisy!

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

shabbychick writes: Well...my favs...the daisies, the jewelry and the candles...it's all too cool though - how about a mix of candies...M&Ms, Hershey kisses, etc., etc....or bowls of buttons, or sprinkles/toppings for ice cream cones/sundaes??? A million and one uses!

Great little project there Miss Sue!! :)

CottageElements writes: Sue, I think my favorite is the one for the condiments. Great way to entertain! But then the skinny vases are pretty cool, too. Oh, heck . . . I love it all! Also, thanks "thehillbillies". Sue's been racking her brain trying to think of the name of that band!!! I'll have to google them now!

Great 'tribute' to an awesome band! Posted: 3:19 pm on August 18th
