Pan Stands from Lamp Bases

This was a quick and easy project!

I took apart the electrical cords; leaving just the base/neck of the electrical part (where the light bulb is screwed into)~~~filled in the little "cup" portion with a hardening compound then attached the metal tins with screws on top~~

I love the metal flowers and leaves on the lamps;  (found for $1.00 each at the thrift shop)~~

Painted them up with home-made chalk paint~~
added a bit of burlap and French wine labels~~

Using Mod Podge to adhere the burlap and label to the tins.

TIP:  if you run out of Mod Podge~~Elmer's Glue does the same job! ~~and it's a lot cheaper!  Dries clear and can use a tiny bit of water to dilute if need to.  I've done this a gazillion times.

Makes cute candle stands~~would be pretty with dried Hydrangea blooms (if I get any Hydrangea blooms this year!)

Have a fantastic weekend~~I'm off to lurk around the postings and see what everyone else is up to!
