Simple Switch: Glass Insulators

by Cait

Just a quick Saturday post to say that our mantel was looking pretty bare since the Christmas decorations came down, so after getting tired of looking at it in such a sad state I swapped in a few things that were laying around the house and picked up these glass insulators.

I originally saw this done on House Bella

The photo in the center is from Katie Bower’s Print Shop, and if you are curious about where anything else is from feel free to ask!

Has anyone else felt like their mantel was kind of bare after taking the Christmas things down?  Or if you don’t have a mantel, have you changed up another display are around the house recently?

  1. I love, love, LOVE these! Where did you find them? Plus, I really like the idea of reusing items!

  2. Thanks for the shout out Cait, and the mantle looks incredible. I’m loving the combination of metallics, brown textures, white, and the aqua green. You might be inspiring me to (finally) take down my Christmas mantle!

  3. OH MY GOSH! My dad has collected those for years, since he was in college. And that was 50 years ago. I have never seen anyone decorating with them, although I was thinking about it. (Once I get some bookshelves in the house)
    Way cool. And I love that beautiful emerald color in yours.

    • Thanks Jane! We’re hoping to come up with some sort of LED design that plugs in for a few of them eventually (which we’ll post about when that happens), but for now the battery idea from House Bella works like a charm! I’ll have to pop over and see how you end up using them :)
