I used rusty bed springs from a friend's back yard and an aqua glass insulator from my garage to create these cute little votive holders for a candlelit Valentine Party. See more of the decor here: http://oldewindmillfarm.blogspot.com/2013/02/valentine-party-2013.html

    Did you half to cut some of the bed spring off

    • @Carolyne Livingston Yes, I did. The springs started getting wider at a certain point and I cut them at that point. I used pliers, then, to open the spring a little to accept the insulator. Does that answer your question?
