Guess The Mystery Thing: Little White Candlestick

Hello again!  Let's play another round of my crafty guessing game, Guess The Mystery Thing.  Challenging you, I am!  Who can identify the original source from which I built this here cute little candlestick?



What is that mysterious white stuff?  Think you know?  No peeking until you have a guess.  Then scroll on down to see the reveal.

Ready?  Scroll away!

I'm thinking a lot of people might get this one - but I have been wrong before.

Here goes!  The answer is:


The top bits from a plastic milk bottle.





The How-To is so simple.  I turned the lid upside down for the base.  I cut off the neck at just the spot where it begins to flare out.


Then I glued them together and inserted my candle.  Isn't it odd how traditionally candlestick-like it looks? 



One of these days I'm going to show you what I did with the rest of the bottle.  (Hint: it's really cool.)

So did you get it right?  If not, what did you think it was?  Do, DO tell!

  1. I thought it was a plastic pipe joint. You could even use the flare out mouth end of the bottle with the cap to collect the falling wax so it wont damage your table
