I wanted some pretty candle holders for my mantel, but I didn't want to buy any. So I used a broken chair that I had in my basement with a bunch of spindles. See how this all came together.
Pretty Farmhouse Wood Spindle Candle Holders
How To Make Wood Spindle Candle HoldersSupplies
- Wood Spindles – mine are from a broken chair
- Scrap Wood Squares
- Mini Clay Saucers
- DecoArt Paint in Poolside
- Paint Brush
- Sanding Sponge
Paint wood spindles in the color of your choice. You can use a light whitewash, or fully coat the spindles. It’s totally up to you. I like a little bit of a chippy look. It really gives it that farmhouse style.
Continue to paint the scrap wood and clay saucers. You will need at least 2-3 coats of paint. Let fully dry.
Use E-6000 or Liquid Nails to attach the spindles to the clay saucers and/or the scrap wood. I only had three saucers on hand so I used wood for the rest.
Let dry overnight. I’m so happy with how these farmhouse spindle candle holders turned out, and they are so budget-friendly. The clay saucers were 3 for $1 and the spindles were free. You can’t beat that!
These would look great on a buffet table, or mantel. For more budget-friendly craft ideas, check out my blog https://ourcraftymom.com/?swcfpc=1
