Can you stand to see one more thing added to the top of a candlestick? Do you remember the glass apple I showed you yesterday? Well, I just couldn’t resist. It was crying out to be glued on top of a candlestick and be made into a house for a cute little bird. Here’s the supplies I used:

I’m not kidding when I say this cute project took all of 2 minutes to make. How’s that for instant gratification? Super Glue the 2 pieces together.

Add the spanish moss and cute bird and display in your living room.

Here’s a close-up of the cute little bird in his new home.

The total cost for yet another candlestick transformation:

Candlestick- $1

Glass Apple- $1.99

Green Bird- $1.49

Total Cost: $4.38  and 2 minutes of time

Very cute Leanne!! I was wondering what you were doing with that apple!!

Cheryl April 26, 2010 at 12:09 pm

Love this & how easy (and cheap) it is. Never occurred to me to glue things like this together. Now I need to find something cute around here to make one! Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday:)

Super cute and I love the colors altogether!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions April 26, 2010 at 5:13 pm

It wasn’t just crying, it was screaming to be glued to that candlestick, Leanne! : ) Perfect and the bird looks great in there.

I have this apple and had no idea what I was going to do with it – thanks for the idea.

That is just too clever and cute. I’m wondering now about the glass pumpkins that are everywhere around Halloween, wouldn’t that be a cute combo? Have to try it!

Very clever, unique and sweet!

Sherry April 28, 2010 at 5:52 pm

Great idea to put the apple on a pedestal…it is adorable with the little bird inside.

Totally cute!

What a clever little idea to combine the two pieces and create a sweet little home for the birdie! It’s a piece that is now both contemporary AND cottage-y. (Is that a word? LOL)
