In the Designer's Words: "After no longer wanting to use it as a candle holder, I took it outside to our courtyard and placed it in the garden. Giving it a 21st century update from its original brass, it had a new purpose as a plant stand. If using real plants/flower, be sure to drill holes in the decorative bowl for drainage."

Oh wow what a great repurposing idea for those no more wanted candle sticks to give it some new life no matter where you use it. It will look great in the garden with any plant in it or just for a decoration, by the front door or corner in the house with a ivy or any kind of vine trailing down. Super cute and such a great way to add some character to any room or outdoor. Do not want a live plant in it then go silk. Super idea.

This really just proves that succulents will look good in anything. What a creative planter! I love it when things get repurposed for things they weren't initially intended for.
