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.reclaimed barn wood, chunks of wood, tea light holder, candle holder, how to make a tea light candle holder

Next, I grabbed my drill and Forstner bit to make the holes.    tool, drill bit, how to make a tea light holder, candle holder, barn wood  tea light candle holder, barn wood, reclaimed wood, diy

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.barn wood tea light candle holders, rustic decor, reclaimed wood, just the woods, staten island

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! Tea Light Candle Holder by Just the Woods, how to make a tea light candle holder, how to make a candle holder
