Here is an easy DIY Fall candle project. You will need access to wood at least three inches in diameter. We used buckthorn which is a very invasive bush that many communities require that you remove anyway. One of the very good qualities of buckthorn is that has a very rich color to the wood with well defined grain. Your candles will look very good in this type of wood.
Start with the basics. Cut a section of wood a couple of feet long. This will give you enough material for a grouping of candles of various heights. Find a wood drill bit that will make a hole big enough for the the candle to fit in. Drill the hole just deep enough for the tea light candle to fit in.

Cher Kalil on Dec 04, 2014I've been thinking about making these for the last few years, yes years. (I have many projects to complete). I think my biggest obstacle keeping me from this simple project is not already having a paddle drill that big in my set. They look great and sell for much too much money!
