I can see many unique ways to choose your candlesticks and thread spools to make one of these with a very modern flair. For instance, how about choosing your thread in varying shades of the same color? Pick a beautiful vintage candlestick or pillar holder. Say my candlestick is one of those milky white vintage glass ones, and my thread spools are all a pretty icy blue to teal colorway. Can you picture it? I know I can!
