DIY Tea Light Candle Holder


My daughter asked me to make something for her for a school presentation that she had dealing with homemade items. We had some leftover wood from our staircase rebuild, so I asked my husband to cut some of the boards down, route the edges and drill holes for tea lights.

Here are a few of the boards cut with the holes drilled. I took over from there and stained a few of the boards with different stains and painted another one black.

Using small squares of aluminium tooling foil (available at most hobby stores), I quickly hand embossed some patterns.

I attached the embossed patterns using E6000 glue.

My daughter used this one in her presentation. These tea light make awesome gifts.
