Easter at the Thrift Store


I found this unusual glass candle holder and white bowl at the Goodwill. I just removed the silk flowers, soaked the glass "ball" in hot water and the old yucky candle got soft. Then I poked the candle with a fork and it came out easy as can be. I polished the glass up, filled it with pastel jellybeans (a brand no one likes enough to snitch) and placed it on the flipped over white dish.


Of course I added a candle from the Dollar Tree and I was done. Have you had any fun thrifting lately?

Pin It!

Cuteness. I did not know your table centerpiece was also a golden a deal. Go mom!! I have no Goodwill finds to share.

Such a cute idea! Love the pastel colors of the jelly beans with the white base.

What a huge difference. I love the combination of candles with jelly beans. So many cute candies to be used for each holiday. :)

That is really cute. I'd have trouble leaving the jelly beans alone, though!

I love that! I would have walked right by that candle holder but it looks so great with the new decorations.
