It is time for The Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge. Thirty other DIY bloggers and I take part in this challenge every third Thursday of the month. I really appreciate Amanda from Kolb Corner for organizing and putting this together every month.
- Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
- There’s no monthly theme.
- There’s no budget to stick to.

And now for more thrifty goodness!
I am so happy with these DIY candle holders made from lamps that I had taken apart and used for another project. One set of lamps turned into two beautiful pieces of decor for my home.
I purchased these two lamps years ago from the thrift store.
After I made those wall sconces, I still had the lamp base left over. I did not throw them out because I thought I might use them for something else one day.
While I was out thrift store shopping, I found these two light fixture globes for 99 cents each. I did not know what I would use them for but I thought they were pretty so I purchased them.
I was going through my shelf where I keep my junk and found my old lamp bases and the globes fit the lamp bases perfectly.
In conclusion,I think that is great when you can make something beautiful for your home out of repurposed or used things that you already have. One thing for sure is no one else will have candle holders like you. You really can have a beautiful home without spending lots of money.
Check out what my fellow upcyclers created below!

Great upcycle and vision! Those tulip lamp shades are perfect as spring decor. Visiting from Thrift Store Upcycle.
It’s great when things just fall together like this. You definitely created a beautiful and unique piece for home.
I love when that happens….hence the reason I can’t get rude of anything.

These are so fun. I love how they look like a flower too. And your DIY bedside light is fabulous too by the way. Thank you for the inspiration.
Amanda at The Kolb Corner says
Very cool! I love how unique they are and you were able to use up some old stuff!
These are spectacular. How lucky to find the globes and have the lamp base that fit. It was certainly meant to be. They are gorgeous.
So creative and I love the bedside sconces!
What a clever and unique project!!
I think they were made for each other! Awesome makeover! Love the beads on the petals.

This is such a great up-cycle! I love it when pieces from two different things fit well together! These look like they were made for each other!
