I’m waaaay into flowers. Yup. Flowers and candles. That’s me. Flower and candle guy. If you need me I’ll be over here…
lighting flowers on fire arranging flowers and lighting candles.Or not.
The odd thing is that, although I keep designing things for flowers and candles I myself do not really partake.
I mean, I’m not against flowers. They are lovely and I appreciate that but it would never occur to me to buy some to put in a room. Likewise although I have a fair number of candles I don’t think I purchased any of them and they’re all in pretty good shape because I don’t light them either.
I do use coasters! (just in case you’re starting to think I’m a total fake.)
Which brings me to my latest Mod Podge Rocks contribution.
The challenge was to troll the aisles at Home Depot and come up with a project using items found there. I came across these various sized drains. So I put them together and made:
A Cigar Humidor!
Ok, no, it’s a flower holder.
Well, it didn’t start out as a flower holder. It started out as a cool lamp type thing (manly! ……in a decorative paper using sort of way) but I couldn’t take a picture of it.
I tried! But it just kept looking like I needed to turn the lights on.
(See, you put an electric tea-light under it and it casts all these cool shadows through the grates of the drain!)
Actually, I do think it’s kind of a fun, versatile project. You could rig it with a light and a cord and make a cool nightlight that would also look decorative just sitting on a table. It could hold pens or paint brushes etc etc.
Or you could go all Royal Family on it, add a string and wear it as one of those teeny tiny hats they seem to favor.
