First, grad the wood piece you'd like to use.
Farmhouse Succulent or Candle Holders
This one is great, you can use it for really whatever you'd like, but I figured they make the perfect fit for candles or a small plant- like a succulent! Here's what I did.
I cut mine in to 3 different sizes for some variety. ( 5", 8", and 10") Then I stained them each a nice dark walnut color.
Next I use my 2" bit to drill a recessed hole to the tops of each. This little space will hold my succulents. I went about an inch and a 1/2 deep.
I added Spanish moss and hot glued the artificial succulents in the little space I made for them. I then distressed the edges with sand paper and added twine for a little visual interest.
Here are a few others I did you can also use with votive and make candle holders. I also used some real succulents in a few of them, really this can be used in many ways!
If you make a set of them, they look great stacked up as home decor, for that farmhouse rustic charm!
