How to make a doll candelabra

The castle is still under construction, so in the mean time, I'll show you what it will be filled with. Check out this candelabra made from trash!

First, I cut off the plastic hooks that are on the underside of hangers.

For the neck of the candelabra, I rolled a strip of paper around a toothpick dowel and glued it down with a glue stick.

Then I added some curves by rolling strips of paper that I tapered to a point.

I added three curves to the tube of paper and collected some buttons and flower bead caps all shown in the following picture.

I glued them all together with my handy glue gun, added some toothpicks that were painted white for candles and voila!
