I’m always looking for new combination possibilites and came across this new combination of 3 items for a trinket box.
The new trinket box is… our 2-1/2″ tall wood candlestick holder. It has a deep 1-1/2″ hole, much deeper than our other candlesticks which usually stops at 1″ deep or so. This makes it useful as a trinket box while other candlesticks has no room.
I noted this depth then looked for something that would work as a lid. Turns out the 1″ round bean pot candle cup worked very well… if placed upside down into the larger candlestick holder’s hole. It already has a hole in the bottom and a handle was needed. Our wood tie peg happened to fit this hole perfectly! So that’s three items you can combine to make a new trinket box! Glue is the only thing needed plus paint or whatever you like to decorate it.
Here’s a picture of the combination.
I was surprised on how well that little candle cup worked as a lid. Other handles are possible but drilling out the small candle cup bottom hole is necessary for these different handles. I will post pictures of these later in the future.
This would work best with really tiny stuff – less than 7/8″ or so. Or for spices, salt, etc. The space is only about 7/8″ x 7/8″, circular. A 7/8″ wood ball fits in the space perfect with almost no rattling with the lid in place.
