Repurpose Horseshoes and Wood Into a Rustic, Country Candle Holder


For those of us with a little cowgirl in us. Here's a repurpose project combining old horseshoes and a chunky piece of rough sawn wood. By drilling spaces deep enough into the wood to hold votive candle holders and attaching horshoes to each end, I've created a rustic candle holder. The wood was from our burn pile and the horseshoes were in the neighbors scrap pile. (He's a farrier and he gave me a dozen of them!)
