Living in a small house with little storage space I've learned to decorate my home with items that can easily be converted for several holidays. This centerpiece on my dining room table is one of them. Starting out as a $5.00 thrift find (1/2 price day!), this Crate & Barrel candle holder has had three "lives" . . . so far. Originally it looked like this:
Then dressed for Autumn/Thanksgiving:
Next for Christmas:
And now for Valentine's Day:
I replaced the tapered candle holders with these dollar store ones because I like the rounded shape better. The heart garlands are necklaces from the Target Dollar Spot (3/1.00) that I cut apart.
The hearts are from the dollar store. I removed the sticks and hot glued them together in a "mound" adding some red beads and stones. So, when it comes time to store these, I'll just remove the hearts and garland and leave the candle holder to be decorated for the next season.
