Primitive Ladle Candle Holder

Are you about sick of fairies? haha! Here's something I made a long time ago, and today I re-did it with a new candle and added grapevine. You'll need an old ladle or dipper, a candle(battery operated would be awesome)-I went with the red apple scented one, and dropped a few drops of apple cinnamon oil in there...I should'a added a stick of cinnamon!,your hot glue gun, some dried flowers(or silk)some grapevine or little sticks(or cinnamon sticks!!!hey,this makes me wanna go back and re-re-do mine!!)
Now, just glue them in there in an arrangement you like. I glued a small lid off of a pill bottle to make my candle sit up higher.


Here it is finished and I just propped it on the china cabinet door for the photo. I actually keep it in the kitchen on an old enamal pot lid hanging on the wall. It would really look great on an old painted cupboard door or chippy door or shutter you have hanging on the wall.

A really neat idea. I remember drinking from one of these when I was a child.
