See how I turned some leftover wood into DIY wooden candle stands in just an afternoon!
Apparently this summer I’ve decided to make everything out of 4×4 fence posts. If you remember, last month I shared all about a DIY sugar mold … using a 4×4 fence post!
Well, I didn’t realize I was so drawn to such a random piece of wood! But, it’s inexpensive AND has a ton of potential for soooo many projects that it’s hard to resist.
This month, I decided to use some leftover wood from the 4×4 I had from the DIY sugar mold to make the absolute easiest wooden candle stands. Ever. Seriously.
Y’all this is SO easy to make I don’t even have how-to pictures.
I grabbed my 4×4 fence post and got to work! Using a compound mitre saw, cut the post to whatever lengths you want for your candle stands. I chose 4 inches and 6 inches.
Next, I applied a very, very light coat of stain.
And. That. Is . All.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t seem to stay 100% satisfied with any arrangement on my open shelves anywhere in my house. I’m constantly adding different decor items or switching out old stuff with something new I’ve thought up.
So, I’m fairly certain you can expect to see different “stuff” on these shelves every time I share them.
I love how the grain of the wood really shows through the stain.
You could also drill a hole in the center for a tea light. Or, add a couple smaller holder for the thinner stick candles to fit. Or, vary the height and/or color of the candles to totally change the look!
Well, I guess it’s time to make something else with a 4×4 fence post….
Wishing you a joyful day!
