Here's what you need:
old chunk of wood (any size; non pressure treated)
1 1/2" drill bit
marker or pencil
Measure, divide and mark your wood where you want to place your candles. I drilled 7 holes evenly spaced in the wood. I steadied the wood between my feet but it would be easier if you used a vice or helper. Drill straight down and just far enough for your tea lights to fit.
- Use metal "C" clamps (they come in various metals at the hardware store - just ask) and attach narrow beaker glass vases (or test tubes) onto the sides for flowers. I saw the vases at Target for less than $2 each.
- Drill the holes deep enough to insert vases directly into the wood. You could make this with all vases or a combo of vases and tea lights.
- Paint (water base), decoupage, or embellish the wood.
- Put them in your fireplace for easy ambiance.
If you make one, please send me a photo or link. I'd love to see where your creativity takes you.
