I'm all for easy projects and this was one of them. I picked up this vintage light fixture at a yard sale for $1.00. It looked like it wanted to be a candle holder. The sockets were a llittle too large for the candles, but I fixed that with some folded paper. I already had the rose swag so I cut it in half and wrapped it around each candle.

Stay tuned for a future post from a certain someone. You'll know what I mean when you see it. (wink)

I really like how you have it set up but if you ever wanted to change it up a bit, you might be able to put some flower foam under the larger center and put together a little flower arrangement through the center hole with jewels/bling of some type around the candle bases to cover the filler. So many options for such a great piece :) Posted: 12:13 am on September 4th
