Ecolovies crafts ~ Recycled Tealight Wall Sconces

I have decided to start a new craft day in my family... I am calling it Ecolovies... where we make neat crafts with recycled, reclaimed, and earth friendly things. Hopefully, it will become a weekly tradition I can share.

These wall sconces were super easy and honestly I LOVE how they turned out! With an old wire hanger from our dry cleaning days, a baby food jar with no top, and a pair of needle nose pliers these babies became neat little wall decorations for my great room. These are the first two, but I am sure as I learn more about the feel of the wire, and the way to use the pliers they will get more and more beautiful. Already I have plans to make some for people for gifts this Christmas. Best of all, they cost NOTHING.

I know, the red tacks take away from the feel of the picture... lol!

But they were so beautiful I couldn't wait to share.
