Pottery Barn knockoff candle holders


  
 
 

I don’t usually go into stores like Pottery Barn, I can’t afford them. I never thought just to go in for inspiration. But back in October my mom had had to go to the Apple Store so I walked around the shops and went into image for the first time ever and perused image.
I fell in love with the candle holders at Pottery Barn and knew I could recreate them myself.010 I went on the hunt for all the parts. I thought I had found the perfect pieces but I didn’t like the first plate I found and used it for this 008 .
Then I ended up using the piece I bought for the base on this 006 . The wine glass in the middle is what I was going to use as a base. Oh what a mess my ribbon is. And I also have the ribbon holders I made on the side of this cabinet.
I had these two pieces as well that I couldn’t figure out how to use with a base 007. Finally one day at Hobby Lobby when glassware was 50% off, I found what I wanted.

The square plate worked out perfect.

  6. I really like how you pieced together different glass items to make a knock-off candlestick that looks like the real thing. Good job!

  8. Oh, wow!! Great knock-off. :) I like that you took yours and did some Valentine's themed decor! These could be easily changed out all year long. Good job! Thanks so much for linking up to my party. Hope you'll stop by Serenity Now again soon. :)
