Candlestick maker

All you need to make these beaut's is a few plumbing parts! Don't ask me what each piece is technically called but they are easily found in the plumbing aisle at any home improvement store.
I will call the round one: The round thinga-mag-ig
and the middle rod...well, The middle rod.


(Even the parts look scared!! what are you going to do stephanie?!?!)


1. Take both round thinga-mag-igs and screw them onto the middle rod at both ends.
2. set candle on top
And that's it! Easy button worthy!

FYI- the rods come in all different lengths so you can make several at different heights for a wonderful industrial grouping of candlesticks. I have several myself :)

Ingenious! Ya know...I have been known to cruise the plumbing and HVAC aisle myself thinking "there MUST be something we can do with all these cool parts!"

You came up with a great one!

I love when I see super clever uses for things other than they were intended for. This is really clever. Donna at Funky Junk was right-on for highlighting your candlesticks.
