Problem: I somehow ended up with some fun taper candles but no candlestick holders for a taper candle.
Solution: I scrounged two small scraps of 1x4 from the shop, drilled a 3/4 inch hole and in less then five minutes I had two simple, but perfectly functional candlestick holders for our table.
Maybe someday I will even paint them...or maybe not.
Materials needed: 2 small scraps of 1x4 (mine are triangles with roughly 3.5 inch sides)
3/4 inch bit (I used a hole saw bit)
Find the center on your wood scrap for the most stability. Drill your hole approximately 3/4 of the way through your wood. Insert candle. Stand back and enjoy your creation!
Quick, easy and free. My favorite kind of project!
