I really can't decide. It will be beautiful as a vase, especially when my garden starts producing flowers for it!
But I tested it as a candle holder and the light is so pretty coming through the sticks.

Anyway, it's made from a jam jar, a bunch of prunings from my garden, and the ribbon off a pair of garden gloves I was given.

I first of all decided on a length of stick, cut the straightest pieces I could find and kept them all the same way up. I then stuck some double sided sticky tape around the top of the flat bit of the jar and placed 2 or 3 sticks to work out the spacing. Then I started with the hot glue around the bottom of the flat bit, half way through I took off the first sticks (that weren't hot glued) and carried on round until the whole way round was done. Then I hot glued the ribbon over the place where the double sided tape was, but that wasn't really necessary.

It was a really off the cuff, unplanned project, but I love it. Smiley

Minus 26C! eep!

To think I was grizzling about -3C earlier this week. I'm now sort of embarrassed about that. Embarrassed

I love the simplicity of it too.  I'd definitely use it for candles. So pretty with the light shining through.
