I’ve had this pretty cool set of chunky glass votive holders for quite a few years now, but have stopped using them. In fact, I even set them aside to donate with my next thrifting purge.
I still actually quite like them, but you know how it is. Sometimes you just move on.
And I really had moved on… until I brought home a bunch of tulips the other day. I have vases, but I was feeling restless, and wanted a change.
For some reason these votive holders came to mind, and then it all fell into place.
Sometimes it pays to think outside of the box!
An unexpected bonus – the inverted dip for the votive became a great stabilizer for holding the tulips upright and in place!
I have decided to keep them after all. Whether or not they’ll see candles again is hard to say, but I know they’ll see tulips again soon… I have three of these chunky vessels and I think a trio for Easter might be kind of nice!
How about you? Have you given something a new purpose lately? If so, what did you do?
Thanks for stopping by!
