Candle holder turned Coasters


 So I was shopping at a local discount home store in my hometown this past week, and I come across these unique candle holders.


I love that they are my favorite color for summer...you can read all about that here. I immediately had a whole new idea of what I was going to do with these cutie pies!
 I wanted  something very cute but different looking to use as a coaster to place on my nightstand in my bedroom. Our bed sits up high and this makes for a long reach to get our drinks.  So I was drawn to how these sit up(lazy I know)high.
 

 I added a thin piece of cork board to the inside where the candle would normally sit.


 
 
 
 This took all of a minute to cut and glue it in place. This really just gives the condensation a place to be soaked up while your glass sits on your coaster.

 
You don't have to add it but I prefer it over the actual pottery surface.

 
So here is my new coasters for our nightstands in our master bedroom!
 

I am very pleased with how cute they turned out!

I got several comments on them when we had company over just the other evening.. I spent a whopping $3.99 on these!
