Thread-Wrapped Bracelet Candle Holder

This is kind of a quick tip I guess – a different way to use pretty bracelets.

A few years ago I made thread-wrapped bracelets on large wooden bases. They are too large for my wrists, for many other people’s as well, and I still had them in my stock.

I thought they looked pretty stacked, and would be a pretty decoration to set a candle in. I took the plunge and glued them together. Here they are on my entranceway table, looking especially pretty for this time of year.

Mother-of-Pearl Bracelet Bottle Holder

The two mother-of-pearl bracelets weren’t actually made by me. I picked them up at a thrift store a long time ago because I like the look of these sticks.

I’ve worn them a few times, but not often, and I’m going through my jewellery right now and changing the colour tones of what I’m wearing, so probably won’t wear them.

I started to wonder if they might be pretty as home decor somewhere, and this is what evolved.

I found this blue bottle on a walk one day, thrown by the side of the road. I brought it home because I loved the colour, and it has been sitting on my kitchen counter ever since.

I’ve been enjoying it just as it is, but decided the multi-toned bracelet stretched around the bottom really adds something. The colours coordinate with my kitchen colours.

Mother-of-Pearl Bracelet Vase Base

This bouquet of origami paper flowers in the tall vase was given to me by a neighbour who makes them. They’ve been sitting on a corner of my bedside table.

I found that adding the yellow bracelet at the bottom adds some much-needed weight there.

This is a way that I can still enjoy looking at bracelets that I don’t wear. 🙂
