Upcycled Light Fixture Candle

I have one more little project from my winter decor I've been sharing. This one involves one of the old light fixtures from my kitchen!

How to make a candle from an old light fixture

Back when I remodeled my kitchen I also replaced the old light fixtures.

What was in my kitchen I believe was the original 1960's fixtures.

This is the part I used to make my new winter candle. I saved it because once it was off the ceiling and I set it down on the counter it just looked like a candle holder to me!

First I painted it red...

But that was before Christmas, so I changed my mind and painted it a nice creamy white for this project.

Then I just started adding some faux greenery...

I found these in the after Christmas sale stuff at Fred Meyer.

Along with this snowflake ribbon stuff!

Now mind you... floral arranging is not my thing but I just arranged and arranged... fiddled and fiddled... and arranged and fiddled some more until I had something that I liked.

I have some little pieces of wood that look like little houses. My dad had this big long piece of wood that was in this shape and he sliced off some pieces for my mom and me to use!

I added some sparkly glitter to the roof.

And placed it in front of my arrangement.


The candle fits right into the area that used to hold the light bulb!
