Posts Tagged ‘ceramic insulators’
Remember the electric wire insulators hubs brought home from work that I posted here?
Since they are made of ceramics which were very heat resistant, I always tried to place candles in them. Perfect when brow-outs do strike specially during stormy days.
That’s not all, it can also prep up a blank table and create a zero dollar decorative accent in homes.
I placed a pink colored candle in one insulator…(another thrifty treasure)
…then added pinky flowers around the candle for a more dainty look
This brown piece is another ceramic-design insulator which I happen to place a bunch of “Chinese incense” (?). Around 40 pesos per bunch.
And, here, in the front porch coffee table, I placed painted DIY dried wild flowers in another insulator. Those two odd similar brown pieces were also another design.
To break the monotony of dark colors, I added a petite orange-y candle and assorted marbles on an unused ash tray. Finished off the thrifty decoration which sits in a “bilao” that used to be a take-out plate when ordering “pancit malabon”.

Hubs took these brown stuffs from his work.
These are ceramic insulators commonly found at power transmission lines. They hold and separate high voltage electric current running through the uninsulated high tension power lines. It protects the wires from dirt, water seepage and lightning.
Did I say I love FREE and ODD stuffs? ^_^ What should I do with those?
can be a flower holder
can be additional display stuffs
can be use as candle holders. no worries for candle drips, the ceramics will not break or burn.
can be spray painted into different colors. will try that out later today.
