I started and finished my holiday shopping in just TWO days. It had to be two, because half way into it, on the first day, I got SUPER hangry and almost went grinch all over the place. Also, if you need a good laugh today, I have a bruise on my knee from walking INTO a bench whilst power-shopping. Bench won. #spoileralert.
SO, ya having peeps over during the holidays?! Need a fun centerpiece for people to oogle over? You could, make some fun candle holders with concrete. Or drink some wine and melt peppermints? OR, you could venture into the depths of the copper isle at Home Depot and make a candle holder!
3 - 3" piece copper
2 - 2" piece copper
I happened to have 3/4" copper, you can go bigger or smaller, but just get a reducer for the tip for the candle to fit in. This will all make sense when you are hanging out in the copper isle for 30 minutes... :)
If you were my father, you'd weld these together. BUT, they were snug enough to stand on their own sans-weld, thankfully.
It's like a 3D jigsaw puzzle for adult crafters, try it!
I really liked the height on it, but sometimes you gotta drop it lowwww amiright?
To further decorate your little centerpiece, steal some shrubbery from the outside, add candles and BOOM, ya done.
