Decorated Candle Glasses
I picked up three of these glasses at post-Christmas sales for 80% off. What a find! After a bit of rummaging around with my ribbons & lace, I decided to decorate the base of these with some glass-pearls & red crystal beads. I LOVE how they turned out! These will be the centerpiece on my table, just as soon as I finish making the placemats.
