DIY Holiday Highlights and True Value Pipe Fitting Candle Holders

Who knew that True Value Hardware sold decorative decor?  Well, mine actually does sell holiday decorations (and TRAINS!), but this is just about the most simple DIY project ever. Just something I picked up while shopping for another DIY project.  It’s got a little industrial character. Just a little creative repurposing that even the most DIY-challenged person (like one who’s brain is already into next week’s vacation)…

(you could even spray paint the pipe fittings but I love mine the way they are)

Instant Industrial Candle Sticks…
 
Restoration Hardware price would be ridiculous.  True Value Hardware price is less than $10 for a set of 3.
 
Not just for Christmas…I love unique objects turned decorating and when was the last time men in your family noticed or commented on your decor? I think this one will get an admirer or two. What do you think?

I was one of the bloggers selected by True Value to work on the DIY Squad. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program as well as my writing about my experience. I have also been compensated for the materials needed for my DIY project. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
