Zero Dollar Home Decoration

Sep 08

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.

Here’s one.

 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”.

Zero-dollar designs :)
