The truth is that it is incredible what can be achieved with little material, of which we all surely have something at home, and a little imagination. These candlesticks They are a great example of that.

Personally, I loved them because the chandeliers always seem cold and winter to me, in fact I take them out of my house in summer. In this case, with a little bit of know to do they have managed to give them a look Very fresh and summery.

They are perfect for dinner on the terrace or as a summer centerpiece, very economical and really decorative.
