Handpainted Stained Glass Votive Candle Holder

A stylish home decor DIY project that repurposes light fixture shades!

This home decor project involved my favorite type of DIY: Repurposing! A friend of mine had their light fixture/ceiling fan replaced and thoughtfully saved for me the six glass shades that covered the light-bulbs thinking I may be able to “do something with them”. He was right!

I used 8 colors of stained glass paint to create this piece. Because I had the paint and paintbrushes on hand, and the glass shades were donated this project cost me $0. And whether displayed in daylight or when illuminated by a flame in evening,  the result is amazing!
