Pallet Wood Tea Light Candle Holder

This amazing project was actually very easy to make!

Pallet Wood Tea Light Candle Holder

We have another day off from school today because of snow so I am just itching to find a project to keep me busy. 

I noticed these little treasures by the burn pile.

Oh no, no, no! No burn pile for these guys!

I headed to the workshop before my husband notices they're gone.

At one time I purchased this Diablo drill bit that I knew would come in handy one day... and it did. 

I marked 5 spots evenly spaced down the length of the wood.

The only problem was that this wood is not pine like I thought, whatever it is is very hard and it took longer than expected to drill the holes. My drill was not happy. 

Once the holes were finally finished I gave the whole piece a quick sanding with my electric sander. 

I stained the wood with my very favorite stain... well, decorative glaze. I painted it on and then wiped it off. I use it on everything I stain. I bought it from Home Depot.

When the stain dried I added a cute little tag holder I got from DLawless Hardware. They have tons of hardware at great prices!

I have no idea what I will write on the paper I'm adding to the tag but I'm sure one day it will hit me. For now I'm leaving it blank.

That's pretty much all there is to this quick project. 

I showed it to my husband and I think he will think twice about what he tosses into the burn pile from now on. 

It's hard to see just how pretty it looks with the candles lit, I will have to wait until after dark.

    1. Thank you so much Kathleen! This was pretty easy though this piece of reclaimed wood was very hard so drilling the holes wasn't as easy as it could be on a piece of pine :) Thanks for visiting :)

  3. Love the candle holder, and how you added the little tag holder. I'm sure you will come up with something good to write on it. I have some old wood that I'm going to make some candle holders, but had a hard time finding a drill bit that worked for what I wanted. Finely ordered one online like you have, works great!
