Candle Holder Make-over!

Another project that has waited long enough in my crafts to-do list is updating the look of this little plain candle holder.
This was the give-aways during my aunt and uncle's renewal of marriage vows four years ago. There were so many extras and I was able to get five. Although very plain and kinda boring, they are scattered and displayed in our house. Yes, I have always wanted to decorate them, but I don't know why I wasn't able to do it sooner. Anyway, I saw an idea in a magazine where japanese papers were punched using craft punchers and then gluing them in some plain votive candle holders. Now, that's the idea plus the inspiration I have been waiting for! As I go over my stash box to look for some japanese papers, I saw some items that I think I can use instead. Like the green dry leaf. I have one of this in the bathroom and our color motiff in there is green. So, the green one goes to the bathroom. I also like polka dots, so I punched out some thin papers that I have. It's so cute! Since the effect of the coaster that I painted using old nail polishes was really great, I decided to do it again with one of the candle holder. I think it's beautiful. Still simple, yet they all look like they have come to life now!
