candlestick turned...(the sequel)

I couldn't leave the other sticks just hangin'. 
And I didn't really want to make burlap nests for all of them. 
I need some variety in my life.
Then my neighbor/BFF/crafy cohort came over and told me what to do.
She's always doing that.
I ran drove to Wally and found exactly what she was talking about.

For a dollar.
I sqeezed some Liquid Nails on the candlestick and stuck it to the glass thing and hoped it would hold. 
Then I let it dry overnight just to be sure.
It totally worked.
Then I got out my roll of jute and a glue gun and started wrapping.
And wrapping.
And wrapping.
When I didn't want to wrap anymore, I decided it would look better if you could see what was in the glass thingy.
I had a fun idea of putting some cute toile fabric in my paper shredder and then filling the glass with shredded toile.
PS It didn't work out so well.
So I settled on some shredded newspaper and eggs.

And now I would like to indroduce you to...
my latest curbside find!
Oh yeah, it came with this too!
