After: Candelabra

What we did: We combined a few matching chandelier lampshades (mismatched ones will work too) into a centerpiece and placed tea lights inside each for a little evening glow.

Extra credit: For a sturdier arrangement, drill holes sized to fit the lamp bases in a salvaged piece of lumber. Prime and paint it white, then nestle the lamp bases in the holes.

Time: 45 minutes plus drying time

Cost: $20
