Candles with a spark

I have these pretty mercury glass candle holders with some plain white pillar candles on them but they were a little boring and lost on my bookshelves.

So last night (yes, bored again) I took out 4 leftover nail heads and some black grosgrain ribbon... 5 min later they had that little something extra I was looking for :)



I might be going a little overboard with all the nail heads, but I so love them right now!

Not over the top, I love them toO! And the great thing about this project, in keeping with the same idea, is to replace the nail heads with something else decorative!

I have never seen this done before. Pretty cool little detail.

Oh I love that you added a little bing to the candles. Love them! I'm in a nailhead sort of mood as well. Have yet to get them in mail yet,but I'm sure I'll be using them everywhere!
