The base candelabra is white with branches & leaves with antiqued gold on the ends. I separated my shells in order of size. I knew I wanted some white, blues, and bronze or gray colors to accent my bathroom. Since I don't plan to use the candles I'll add small silk flowers,beads,some funky dangling earrings and a tassel or braided shear fabric as swags. I've painted a few shells and hot glued into place. Anyone have any ideas? I'm just designing as I go........nothing special just a indoor project since it's cold outside. Will post my before and afters. 1/31/13
Tree Candelabra with 3 candleholders-naked and bare. Before project began.
My seashell collection from Panama City Beach, FL. Arranged according to size so I could selected same sizes to match.
Day One: Painted shells bronze and metallic blue and hot glued to the candleholders.
