We put together these quick wall sconces to hold our battery powered candles.


Mark where to trim the wood piece, cut with saw (we used a miter saw).

Glue this wood piece in place with RapidFuse glue.

Cut the circle to fit the frame when it's against the wall.

Glue and clamp into place. You could also add a few nails thought the top for extra support.

Spray paint and let dry. Add a picture hanger if your frame did not have one.

Because we had all the supplies on hand that we needed, this was a quick project to complete. These are a modern take on traditional wall scones but utilizing battery operated/remote controlled candles!

    I have had trouble finding the perfect headboard for my bedroom, but I think I just found it! I love this idea and am going to make various sized wall sconces to hold various sized candles and place them in place of a traditional headboard. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration. I can’t wait to get started.
