repurposed insulator and crystal lamp base.

repurposed insulator and crystal lamp base.


When I found a huge amount of insulators, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with them.  Repurposing them into votive candle holders.  I've used the clear and turqois ones and have had allot of success with them selling at shows and my shop.  I use a variety of bases...vintage and new, to hold them upright as they have rounded bottoms...or tops?!
