DIY Candle Holders
Candles can set the mood for the holidays. Candlelight and fires are some of the first things that come to mind for a cold, winter’s night or a holiday dinner. Why spend money on expensive candle holders when you can make them? Candle holders make great gifts as well. Check out these amazing DIY candle holders and creative ideas!
DIY Birch Candle Holders
If you have some tree branches laying around, why not turn them into something fun?! Birch candle holders are really popular, and for good reason. They smell amazing, look rustic, and are simply beautiful. In her blog, Nina Hendrick reviews how to use real logs to DIY Birch Candle holders.
Simply choose some of the straightest logs, drill a hole in the center for a tea light (make sure some metal stands above the top to keep the flame from the log). After that, create a set of varying height and voila! Amazing DIY candle holders.
Add some copper for a polished look
Take your existing candle holders up a notch with a beautiful metallic accent. For instance, a beautiful copper ribbon is a perfect addition to any holiday decoration.
Copper tape is readily available on Amazon in your choice of widths. For example, take something simple like an existing votive or candle holder and add some copper flare. Perfect for a DIY Christmas decorations 2021 craft activity.

DIY Wood Taper Candle Holder
Try these simple ideas for your tapered candles. Whether you are setting the table or need some added ambiance, these candle holders can be customized with paint or some stain for your personalized look.
This is also a fun craft for littles to add their own touch. For instance, perhaps spell their name in letters, “deck the halls”, or some other message that speaks to your family.
For the wooden board version, a cute customization we have seen is adding all the family members names to each side, or adding a year to each side as time progresses to make it a memory board of sorts.
