My friend loves buttons like I do and recently spied my button covered candles and encouraged me to post a picture of them. The candle stick's themselves I inherited from my mother-artist, queen of re-purposing and altering things before it was all the rage. Originally they were table legs that she had salvaged and re-purposed them into candle sticks. I have fond memories of them growing up and really can't recall them not being in my life. When we moved into our 100+ year old funky farmhouse 15 years ago I was bored with the way the candles looked and it was then that I got the wild idea to glue old and new buttons onto the candles using a plain old glue gun. Boy have they held up!
Here's an up close shot of
them. If your into buttons and button projects
