Unclutter the bathroom: How to make a bathroom organizer with candle holders

Toss out that unattractive cotton-swab box, stash the cotton-ball bag in the cabinet and freshen up your bathroom with some sprigs of lavender. Doing this easy project will net you an attractive holder to set on the sink. Organize swabs, potpourri, bobby pins and other assorted bathroom items in these small holders to reduce bathroom clutter.
For the best look, use votive candle holders that have patterns or texture of some type. You may even use tinted holders. Candle stores carry a variety of shades and shapes, but dollar stores also sell basic candle holders that would work for this project.

Instructions
1. Cut off 12 inches of wire. Hook it around the rim like you would a scarf. Twist the wire in front like a twist tie. Angle each length of excess wire away from the other.
2. Take the tip of the right wire and curve it up and toward the left, then down until you form a small loop. Hold the loop in place and bring the excess wire down so it looks like a hanging string. Cut excess wire, leaving an inch or so hanging down.
3. Take the tip of the left wire and curve it up and over toward the right, then down until you form a small loop. Hold the loop in place and bring the excess wire down so it looks like a hanging string. Cut excess wire, leaving an inch or so hanging down. This should look like a metal bow.
4. Repeat all steps for two additional holders.
5. Cluster the three holders in the center of the plate. Apply a ring of glue on the bottom of each holder, one at a time. Replace the holder on the plate, gently pressing down.
