Tin Candle Sconces



     I used some tin from a tea-light candle and a biro to create these candle sconces, the sort that was usually found in most homes in the 18th century.  The shape dates to 1750, but I created the thistle pattern myself.  Try it if you have 5 minutes, it's really quick and effective!
