Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I love decorating for the holidays and wanted to create a beautiful, inexpensive, fall centerpiece for my dining room table. I found this cute tray and leaves on sale before fall started, so I was excited to make something using them. We have a stack of firewood for our fireplace, so I stole a couple of pieces of wood from there to make a candle to go with my décor finds. I added some pumpkins, and I love how it turned out! The candle is so easy to make that I wanted to share it with you.
Start with a piece of wood. I'm not even sure what kind this is, like I said above, I just found a cute looking one from our firewood pile in the size that I wanted. I cut about an inch off each end of the log that I found, just so it would be level.
Using a 1 1/2 drill bit, I drilled the top deep enough to fit a tea candle flush inside. And that's it! So simple right? It only took about 5 minutes to make this candle holder.
I think it would be cute to make several different sizes to put by a fireplace mantle for Christmas too.
