quirky candle holders

Recommended Posts

A candle holder doesn't have to be a cup on a stick. There are so many things in the scarp pile that can be adapted to make them.  Here are a couple I put together for fun. A 17mm socket holds a standard candle pretty well. The ones on the left are made from the rotors in a displacement pump. I hope this photo comes out because I have just got a new computer and I'm not sure how to access my pics. This is a trial run (hoping).

I've just had the need for a candle so headed for the "emergency" cupboard......low and behold I find two that had been quickly pressed into service some time ago during a power outage still complete with their makeshift holders.......yorkshire compression fitting nuts from my plumbing bin! I've been looking for those two nuts for years!

I like the idea that holders can be "tuned" to the individuals interests or occupation.
