On the 4th Craft to Christmas...

I made my own candlesticks!


I love how chunky and tall they are.


Want to make your own?


Supplies:

~4x4 lumber (usually comes in 12ft) = lots of candle sticks

-cut these down to desired height (mine are 15, 12 and 10 inches)

~2 post bases/ candlestick (or if you have the extra's use 4.5x4.5 squares)

-the bases can be as simple or as decorative as you wish...play around and have fun.

~paint


Using your personal choice of nail, screw or extra tough adhesive attach the squares/bases to each end of the 4x4

Paint (sand a bit for character) and Voila! you have yourself customized candlesticks.


I am thinking of even cutting some to 24, 20 and 18in to have on the floor.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
How wonderfully blessed we are!
