Post candle holders


When my husband showed me some posts that the previous owners had left in the barn I knew I could make something with them...with my husband's help I turned one of them into two free standing candle holders.

    How did you cut out the center of the top to recess the candle and with what?

    I love the candle holders. They would look good anywhere. You don't even have to light them, I can't have lit candles around because I'm on oxygen. Thanks for letting us see them. Lily C Canada

    Cute. Another idea would have been use them as sides to a headboard, using bead board for the head piece. Good work.
