Revist a Candle Holder Redo

Hi everyone!

Today is the day we revisit an old post for my friend Chari's blog Happy to Design for Sunday Favorites. And I am joining Stephanie at Under the Table Dreaming for her Sunday Showcase party. As well as Susan at Between Naps of the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday

Since we are having such a wonderful weekend weather wise, and are outside working in the yard, I thought I bring back a post from last Spring.A little DIY fun yard art redo. I hope you enjoy it!

Okay, do you remember this candlestick from a recent post of mine?

When I bought it, I knew that it wasn't going to stay looking like this. Because if it was, I wouldn't have bought it! LOL

So, first thing I did was painted it bright yellow. I also sprayed it after the paint was dried with a clear sealer. It already looks better!

Then I bought these cute ceremic decorative planters and faux flowers at Michael's for 50% off. These little pots are for decoration only. They have no drainage holes for real plants. But that was okay with me because you would have to water these little suckers constantly. And I just wanted some pretty bright yard art anyway.

I glued each pot to the top of each candle holder and then did a little floral arrangement in each planter. I love the way it turned out! And it is such a fun punch of color. it really makes me smile! And by the way, it is secured into the ground. We have entirely too much wind to not secure things down!

The barrel behind it holds spearment and a strawberry plant. All of the oak barrels are filled with different kinds of mints. I love them for hot and iced tea!

I love the way it turned out! Bright, cheery and a little whimsical! Just perfect at the corner as you approach our door!

I just have to show this pretty little miniture rose bush. Why you ask? Because on Valentines Day Troy buys me a miniture rose plant and then we hope it last long enough to plant it in the Spring. And I am happy to report, it is doing wonderfully!


  1. Very pretty Diann, love the yellow. It's a very cheerful and sunny color...Christine

  2. I love how bright and colorful that looks. I would never have thought of doing that. I actually have a smaller candle holder that is similar to yours that I may use to try to copy you. Remember ~ imitation is the sincerest form of flattery ~ right?

  3. Diann you are such a thrifty and creative gal! I am happy to know you. We need to get busy with our new yard but we are all sick with sinus,bronchitis and other Spring allergy related sicknesses! Yuck!
    The candleholder turned out so sweet. It really makes a bright spot in the yard doesn't it? Have a wonderful Mother's Day! Hugs Anne
