Leah - these would be great! Pictures displayed in style! There are always small inexpensive frames to be had. Paint them and attach to decorative candle sticks, also painted. An excellent idea for bringing interest to a mantle or other narrow space.
These floor candlesticks were an inexpensive DIY. They're actually newel posts (the vertical post at the bottom of a staircase) attached to fence post toppers, and then painted. See Impatiently Praying for Patience for more on who they were made.
