Mercury Glass (like) Candle Holders
I have been coveting candleholders like these for years. The true antique versions are way out of my price range. Fortunately I’ve figured out a way to make my own version for very little money and I can have as many as I want. Plus, let’s just face it, they are beautiful and super easy to make. Just don’t tell anyone the secret, OK!
