High Strung!

Whenever I come across little glass jars or bottles, I can't help myself from stringing them up and the end result is always fun! The latest one in my collection is made by stringing together a bunch of colourful tea light holders that I had bought last Diwali. Now they hang next to my bathroom mirror and hold all kinds of handy stuff. 


For those of you who haven't seen my earlier post on the bath makeover, you might want to check this out. You'll know what I mean when I say that sometimes small spaces can be a blessing in disguise, they just challenge you to think out of the box. 



Here are two more of my mobile glass holders - one hangs from my dressing mirror and the other was a money plant holder in my previous house. All you need is a few jars/ bottles and a string of rope to make yourself one of these. You don't even have to go out of your way to look for the glass pieces, just raid your stuff for old spice jars, tea light holders, miniature alcohol bottles or even cosmetic jars...you're bound to find something! And if you are feeling a little more creative then get a set of stain glass paints and go wild with the plain glass pieces.

Use these as planters, trinket holders or even tea light displays. They also  make great gifts for friends.

    Stumbled upon your blog through some other blogs (don't even remember how), the point being this is such a visual treat.

    Loved your blog. The pictures and the words.
