 The countdown to Christmas is coming  fast but if you have a bunch of junk sitting around you may be able to whip these up in a couple of hours.

 These candle holders started with a few things that I had dug up at a yard sale.

 And a few pipes that I had literally dug up…yes they were at an old dump.

The terra cotta pipes were painted white.  I used an interior semi gloss left over from painting the trim in my house.

When the white paint was dry,  I taped off  stripes and painted with a a soft gray color.  This paint was leftover from painting my bedroom.  I  do like to use what I have.

The pipes were sanded  gently with fine sandpaper just to bring out a little of the pipes age.  Went over the pipes again with a  light stain to give a little age.

My junky tops were washed and just placed on top … the candleholders were finished.

 What I like about these is that they can be used any time of year as a focal point on the table.  The only thing that makes them seasonal is the greenery.

Thanks for stopping by and  may you all have the happiest of holidays.
