What You’ll Need:

How To:

Step 1: Using your miter saw, cut your 4″x4″ wood board to your desired length. Sand any rough edges from the cut.

Step 2: Mark the center line of what you want to be the top of your wood candle holder. Make a dot with pencil every 2″ down that center line, beginning 2″ from one end, and ending 2″ from the other.

Step 3: Use your 3/4″ spade bit and drill to drill 1″ holes into your 1″x4″. Place the tip of the spade bit on each of the dots you just made.

Step 4: Sand away any rough edges.

Step 5: Stain and/or paint as desired. Allow to dry.

Step 6: Place your taper candles into each hole. Depending on your candles, you may have to slowly work them into the holes. Don’t worry, a tighter fit is better and will ensure the candles stay upright.
