Log Wood Tea Light Candle Holders

Sharing a quick and easy DIY on how to make Log Wood Tea Light Candle Holders!!

I made these a few weeks ago with my Dad using some log wood we had left behind our shed that we used during the summer for our bonfires. These are super easy to make and you only need a few tools. All you need is the following:

  1. Log wood at least 4" in diameter
  2. Drill
  3. 1 ½" wood boring drill bit
  4. Saw- we used a miter saw, but if you don't have one a hand saw would work too
  5. Tea light candles
  6. Jute twine

We cut each holder three different sizes, but you can cut them to the size you like. Next, we drilled a hole for the tea light candle about ½" deep using the wood boring drill bit. For some added texture I tied jute twine in bows around the candle holders and voila your done!

I would have loved to make these using white birch wood, but I still love the way they turned out. Maybe next year I will have to get some and make more!

We also made these cute rustic tree ornaments with the leftover log pieces!

I stamped images and words on the ornaments, and then used a wood burner to burn the images into the logs. I just love the way these turned out!!

Thanks for taking the time to read my post! 😊💜

This is so great, have followed and upvoted. Definitely going to be giving this a try :)

Thanks!! I don’t actually light the candles because I’m a freak about accidental fires in the house but I still like how they look!

Hahaha, that was literally my first thought too... even though I know how hard it is for these logs you catch fire. They do look very pretty though!!

Hey, I don't know if you're looking for advice or not... but the really big payouts you've gotten before come from the curie curation process. The guidelines are here.. Your posts are so good and great for this platform... but I personally would like to see a bit more of a step-by-step process documented so that someone reading your posts could re-create the amazing things you're making.

Thanks for the advice! I will keep that in mind for future posts! I always forget to take pictures along the way so it’s hard to show step by step without the pictures. I have not done any new projects lately because it has been so cold but when I do I’ll try to remember to take pictures! I have plenty of new project ideas for this year.

That's exciting!!! I really love your style, so I'm excited to see what you come up with.

I always forget photos too, I'm usually having too much fun to stop, but Steem is slowly reminding me to think about it more... and I'm always happy to have the photos when I do think of it.
