One thing I gave up when I remarried was my candles! If we weren’t in the room where the lovely light was flickering, he blew it out as we exited the room. In my single days I used to come home from work and go around the house lighting candles in each room with the Bic lighter enjoying the dancing light on those first dark winter days. Then it was fun to go through all the rooms and blow them out at bedtime. My husband doesn’t think that is safe. HUH! If we have to blow out the candles….well…. it isn’t worth the time to light them. LOL
Oh well , it is a small thing to sacrifice since he does all the cooking, vaccuming and most of the laundry….YAY! Tradeoffs : )
I finally got to Michael’s Craft store last week and found some gorgeous glass bowl filler in mirrored clear and turquoise.
A few aisles down I saw this “cork” with a self turn light and immediately thought of making a night light with it.
One place I always miss a candle burning is in the guest bathroom when we host our friends. It’s nice to have a little light on so folks can find the light switch, this bottle night light in beachy colors is perfect to light the way!
Step #1: Put a 1″ layer of the turquoise glass pieces on the bottom.
Step #2: Next put a 1″ layer of the clear mirrored glass pieces.
Step #3: Wrap some necklace chains around the neck of the glass and secure with a wire in the back
Step #4: Attach some prisms to the chain
Step #5: Decorate the “cork” with a rhinestone earring.
This “cork” is ingenious…you just twist the lighted end on or off so you don’t glue the cork into the bottle. When you want a night light you lift it off the top and give it a twist to light it. The light reflects off the mirrored glass pieces and it is just gorgeous!
I love the romance of the light dancing off the mirrored clear glass…it really is pretty. It really only takes 15 minutes to make this if you have all your supplies at hand!
