You... light up my life!
The big guy meets the little sprout.
The little one slips right in the big guy.
Heres a look at the snug fit that makes this union a strong one.
The little tip on the end of this candle holds it firmly in place.
I love the scalloped candle against the clean lines of the mouthpiece.
Looks like an old world, antique candleholder, eh?
This is what I call the general prettiness shot. My long time photographer and dear friend, Doug Smith always laughs at this term I coined on one of our many book shoots. General prettiness is when your project finds a home with other pieces to create a whole. This candleholder has found some friends to play with and will live happily ever after. So there you have it!
You... light up my life!

You... light up my life!

I'm digging this Simple Mondays Series, JUNKMARKET Style, so I hope you are too!! I've been super excited to show you this one.... a candleholder project that puts the "S" in simple. Two mouthpieces, one small, one large come together to make one stunning and sturdy candleholder. If you have five minutes, you can do this.

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