Barn Wood Tea Light Candle Holder
Tutorial: How To Make Tea Light Candle Holders
We recently finished up our reclaimed barn wood farmhouse table and had some left over chunks of the wood slab. I wanted to be able to use every last bit so I decided to make rustic reclaimed barn wood tea light candle holders. That description is quite a mouth full, I apologize for that.
I sliced the chunks into smaller pieces with the table saw and sanded them on the edges. In an attempt to maintain the natural rustic feel of the barn wood I only sanded the rough areas of the wood and did not sand the chunks smooth.
Next, I grabbed my drill and Forstner bit to make the holes.
I made a random amount of holes on the different pieces of wood. Some have three, others have one or two, etc. There’s no rhyme or reason to the things I do.
Next, just to be sure my holes were the correct size and depth I dropped in the tea lights before cleaning up my mess. Good to know, they fit the first time around!
I love the rustic, romantic feel that these little beauties give off. So simple too.
I’ll be sharing this post at these fabulous link parties.
