Have you ever tried to make something and it turned out so bad you threw it away? That was my first project. I had to go back to the drawing board. It seems impossible that Thanksgiving is already here so I decided to make something for my table instead.
I have a table that is narrow so I have to keep my centerpieces small unless I want my guests to eat on their laps. I’ve used wood boxes and antlers in the past. This year I used wine glasses to make candle holders and a wood baguette pan. Get the details below.

How to make Wine Glass Candle Holders
I have a bunch of these very inexpensive wine glasses that I found at a garage sale. They are perfect for small candles, but alone that seemed pretty blah. To jazz them up I used some wool yarn, burlap ribbon and hot glue.
They take only a few minutes to make, but they add a small detail to the table. I like to keep my tables simple.
Simple Thanksgiving Table
This year I used my grandmother’s pink dessert cups and pink IKEA plates. The centerpiece is a baguette pan, which is perfect for narrow spaces. You can fill a baguette pan with fruit, flowers or candles but it’s nice and narrow.
The tablecloth is a drop cloth. I mixed in faux cotton stems with the candles. The teak and brass vintage flatware is from ETSY.
