Turn thrift store trophies into a unique trophy candle holder! Learn how to turn junk into fun home decor with a few simple techniques.
One of the many things I love about my readers is that you all are so open minded to different crafting ideas. Occasionally, I’ve made something quite out of the norm (like this mirror) and been delighted to find that you all really liked the idea (and didn’t think I was too crazy). After I made this bottle topper out of a trophy, I looked at the trophy pieces strewn on my desk and wondered what I could do with them. I grabbed a few items and started playing. This is what I came up with: a one of a kind candle holder.
The first version of this was spray painted a neon yellow. That was a disaster. I didn’t prime anything, so the paint dripped and didn’t adhere evenly. The color was a terrible choice. Major craft fail!! So I started over and made some adjustments, and I love the end result. It’s unexpected but prettily shabby chic, I think. I actually get lots of compliments on this piece!
