First, I cut off those little metal points that never really held a candle well. I never could find the right size either. I used these old cutters that I found in the garage. I was going to use the dremel tool but low and behold it was not in the dremel case. I haven't a clue where it is.
I had these small votive cups and used this glue that worked super fast but still gives you enough time to move it around.
The hook goes to the black lantern that you will see a few pictures down. I gave it a coat of some spray paint so that it blended better. Stuck the hook in the old crusty box and then filled the box with gourds, some twiggy garland and some small indian corn.
Then I redid the sofa table a bit. It needed a less is more approach. I am realizing I need to put stuff away and not try to use it all. This house is smaller then my old house and I have to decorate lightly or it becomes rather cluttered looking. I should just get rid of some of it. The lantern may get a redo too. I'd like to get some clear glass and give it a coat of paint. Has anyone used the hammered silver spray paint? I'd like to get it to look like galvanized metal.
I'll show you where the candlier ended up next. Which is not hard to guess.
