DIY Pedestal Picture Frame

This is another fun project to do with your thrifty candlesticks. My inspiration is from Mrs DIY and the Tennis Guy.

I found what I needed for $4,00 at the Goodwill and sprayed them white. Important to note that I chose one shorter and taller candlestick.

After they dried I glued the frame to the candlestick with E6000.

They look so sweet in my daughter’s room. You can take the tour here if you’d like.

I do think these would look great in every color and since they are so inexpensive I need more!

By the way, I saw these awhile ago in a local antique mall for $12.00 each. Now we know how they were most likely made!

Hope you like!
