Re-Purpose Cotton Rounds & Candle Holders

Hello Dear Readers!

Life and other activities have kept me away from my blog duties in the last several days, I hope to get back to my regular posting schedule soon!

In the meantime, I did want to check in and share something different that is a bit creative. (That is what my blog is all about!) We are all looking for ways to use items in different ways; aka re-purposing. Well, I have have a different way to use those little cosmetic cotton rounds and a candle holder!

A friend gave me a lovely cactus planter as a hostess gift. (I have wonderful friends!) There was a drain hole in the bottom of the planter and I needed something to set it on. Re-purposing came in twos! I used a candle holder as the stand since I didn’t want anything flat or too high. Since the candle holder was slightly curved, it could hold a tiny bit of excess water that leaked through the soil. As an added precaution, (I am one of those people that always have a plan ‘B’) I decided it needed something extra to absorb excess water. Cotton round to the rescue! Since the cotton rounds are inexpensive, I can replace them as needed. I love using items in different ways!

Do you have any other uses for the little cotton rounds or candle holders? It would be nice to share your ideas and comments ~ I love hearing from my readers!

Enjoy your Creative Day! ~~~ Vickie
