First, find some dry logs that have the diameter that you’re looking for.
Rustic Candle Holders
A hotel spa in Nashville wanted some sets of log candle holders in 3 different heights. We took the project on, and are very happy with the finished result. This is what we did!!
Get a straight draw and some coffee and debark the logs until your hearts content😜 I may have had some whiskey coffee for this part.
Get as much of the bark off as you possibly can, to save on sanding time.
The next step is to sand down the logs until your desired smoothness and then apply a coat of poly. This way you seal them while keeping the beautiful natural look. We then grouped them into sets of 3 and joined them together with some rope. They look great!
Some of the candle holders we kept the tops flat and a few we used a forstner bit to recess some t-lite candles. You can make the space the right size for the candles you'd like to use. Both ways looked great! Enjoy!
