Hello folks, it’s me Julie from Redhead Can Decorate!
Spring has finally sprung in the Midwest! I’m hoping it has where you live, too. If it has, it’s time to get our hands dirty and dust off our flower pots!
Today, I’m sharing a very easy, affordable, and innovative flower pot idea.
Introducing my “Repurposed Candelabra Flower Planter”.
If you look closely, can you figure out what this baby is made out of?
Let me expain…
While taking down a very old ceiling fan, I couldn’t bare to throw away the cute little white glass shades.
After all, they looked like flowers to me.
At first, I thought they would make cute flower pots.
Then, I felt as though they needed something underneath to finish them off, so I searched the house.
I came across a candelabra in my basement that I had spray painted white months earlier, but never used.
sprinted like an olympic runner ran back upstairs hoping they would be a match.
I was pleasantly surprised that the shades and candelabra were a match made in heaven.

I couldn’t believe my eyes.
What a beautiful flower planter it made.
All I had to do was glue it together with some strong adhesive, and fill her up.
I later realized that it was very versatile.
It actually worked even better as a vase. I used it for Lilacs, Peonies, and even Basil. If you use it for a planter, be sure to use gravel at the bottom first for some soil drainage.
One last tip…Mother’s Day is coming up next month.
Glass shades by themselves actually do make cute pots for Mom & Grandma.
I see them at thrift stores all the time.
