New Wives Club #10: turn vintage kitchen funnels into striking candle holders


Vintage funnel candle holders

This makes me feel Christmassy – how about you?  These old metal funnels are the kind of thing I see at carboot sales, and whilst I love the tarnished metal and each dent that hides a story, I never know what I would do with them at home other than hoard them.  Poor Mr Rigg, now I have an idea what to do with them!

Turned upside down with a candle stuck in the spout, they make quite striking and beautiful candle holders.  I love candelight at the best of times, but even more so when the nights begin to draw in and especially at Christmas.  I think if I can source a few of these, they would look beautiful along side my vintage jelly mould tealight holders.

Any other suggestions for new uses for old domestic items such as these?  Have you found any other ingenious items that make great candle holders?

My question is where can I find a candle that then? Love the idea.
