Repurposed Tea Light Holder

I'm still in the middle of remodeling my bathroom but I have been looking around my home for items to use as accents once everything is completed. Here is a simple repurposed project I created.

This Tea Light Holder was created using a wire basket that originally held small clay pots. I thrifted this here.

I used two glass Insulators that I thrifted here and turned them upside-down inside the wire basket.

I placed a flameless tea light inside each one to create a teal glass candle holder that I will use to decorate my bathroom {once I make up my mind and stop changing the wall color}.

  1. These look so pretty, lovely idea!!!

  2. Love this! Love insulators, but never know what to do with mine. Thanks for the great idea!

  3. Great idea. Thanks for sharing

  4. I love this idea! Great idea to turn the insulators upside down to create votive holders. I like to use those flameless tea lights, also. They give a nice glow without the worry.

  5. What a creative idea! Having the handle is, well, handy for moving them around. They would be great on a porch.

  6. You are one samrt and clever lady. That is a great idea and looks very nice.

  7. Brilliant! I'm kicking myself for selling our insulators at a garage sale a few years ago. Grrr....

    Thank you for linking up to "A Little Birdie Told Me..."! I'm pinning your post to my "Repurposing Genius" board over at Pinterest!


  8. I absolutely love this idea, Lynda! I have several vintage glass carriers and lots of old insulators. Mind if I "borrow" your fabulous idea? ;)

    Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday last week. Hope to see you again this week.
