First stop - home depot - I purchased 3 different wooden legs at different heights. Then I purchased 6 terra cotta pot saucers for the top and bottom of each. For the longer table legs I purchased two larger saucers for the bottom for extra stability.

Step 1: Remove screws.


To begin, twist off the screws using a pair of pliers. This will leave your legs with a flat surface.

Step 2: Attach & let dry.

Next, attach the saucers using E6000 glue and let them dry overnight.

Step 3: distress.

After your candle sticks are dry, grab a bar of soap and begin rubbing it into the grooves of each leg.

These candle sticks are such a stunning accent to any room, and no one will believe you made them yourself!


Just add a bow and some greenery to dress them up for Christmas!

These are also great after the holidays too - mix and match your candles & decor -- the possibilities are endless!

    What's chalk paint

      You can make homemade Chalk paint by choosing your color of flat latex paint and add plaster of paris powder to make it think but not a paste. It dries full looking like Kerry said just to make things look farmhouseish, Country, Primitive and chippy chic style! Have fun. There are recipes on Pinterest for exact measurements of chalk paint!

    Do you use a base coat of paint and then a different color on top?

    • Erica Smith
      on Dec 15, 2018

      No Ma'am! Just use the chalk paint. It will act as the base coat and final coat. She used the soap just to help distress the candle sticks. You can skip that IF you want and just use the paint or any kind of paint you choose. If your style isnt rustic then use a semi or high gloss!
