The directions for these candle sticks are almost identical to the Jewelry Display Stands that I did for Anthropologie and The Nate Show.
First, gather your materials. Here's what you need:
- wooden circle (or square) plaques- find them at your local craft store for $1
- wooden spindles- you can use old chair pieces, table legs, or stairway spindles)
Once you have your materials gathered, each candle stick should only take a few minutes to assemble. Here's how you do it!
1. Cut your spindle(s) down to the heights you want. You can use a chop saw or hand saw to do this. Tip- If you are going to cluster a few together, cut them at different heights to add interest!
2. Screw a plaque to the bottom of your spindle. You should pre-drill the spindle to make sure the wood doesn't crack.
3. Next, you need to drill the out the top of the spindles to make room for the candle.
4. After that, use paint and ribbon to embellish your candlestick to fit your style.
5. Last, put the candle in place and start creating that cozy feel in your space. When using candlesticks, I like to create groupings to really add impact.
One of my favorite place to pick up spindles is at flea markets. You can find a variety of options for very low prices. As a matter of fact, I made 5 candle sticks for a total of $12!
Now, it's your turn! :)
