Concrete Copper Candle Holders
I’m a really tactile person and if I saw these in a store, I would have to touch them. I love the way the concrete and copper look together. These are a great gift for someone who entertains for the holidays. The décor adds warmth to a dining table. This is from Houseful of Handmade.
