Easy Fall Candle Project

Here is an easy DIY Fall candle project. You will need access to wood at least three inches in diameter. We used buckthorn which is a very invasive bush that many communities require that you remove anyway. One of the very good qualities of buckthorn is that has a very rich color to the wood with well defined grain. Your candles will look very good in this type of wood.
Start with the basics. Cut a section of wood a couple of feet long. This will give you enough material for a grouping of candles of various heights. Find a wood drill bit that will make a hole big enough for the the candle to fit in. Drill the hole just deep enough for the tea light candle to fit in.

    my husband has been making these for years! We give as gift and people love them. We go one step further though and add a glass tea light holder so the wood does not burn!

      @April Lippert Are you confusing tea lights with votive candles? Tea lights come in their own little metal containers & will not burn the wood.

    I did this years ago when I found a perfect size birch limb on my walk! Love it!
