I am having so much fun trying to re-create some of the fabulous items pictured by Sunny from the Z Gallerie. You know that area when you walk into the front of Target that has the baskets of items usually three dollars and under? Most of the time I just walk past thinking of what I need to be getting. The other day something in my ear said "take a look at what's here!" There, I found the cutest ceramic candle holders for just $2.50. A couple of black ones, lime green, yellow and off white. A light bulb went off and I thought of the picture of the sea shell laden candle holder at the Z Gallerie.
Although the candle holder from Target appeared much smaller and not quite as detailed, I could definitely
work with it.
I found a couple of bags of pretty seashells at Michaels for $1.99 - plus I could use my coupon for 40% off. Not a bad deal at all!!!
The fun part was gluing the shells on with a glue gun. It was just like fitting the pieces of a "puzzle". Moving the shells around for the best coverage and appearance.
Do you like this angle?
Or this one?
I know the original holder is completely off-white, but I like to see the beautiful "markings and colors" of the sea shells and chose not to spray paint. Besides, it's been raining all day . . . . a good excuse not to do it!
