My visions for transforming thrift store finds and other objects don’t work out 100% of the time. So, it’s fantastic when they do!
Here are three little Santos crowns I made out of the three fleur de lis votive candle holders from last week’s thrift store post. I just gave the little glasses inside each holder back to the thrift store and kept the metal stands.
Then I raided my vintage jewelry findings stash and whipped up three little santos crowns. It reminded me how much I want to get back to the jewelry making, but most of my supplies are in a storage locker right now so that will have to wait (if you want to see what my vintage statement jewelry looks like, here’s my Etsy selection). They ended up looking just like I hoped they would. They’re decorated around the back, too–just not as gaudily. What do you think?
Now I just need to find a santos doll at some thrift store (never going to happen…)
