Super easy project for you today! Nature inspired, DIY Glass and Wood Candleholders
I picked up a couple magnolia logs in Tennessee recently when I went for my grandson’s birthday. They have two huge magnolia trees next to the house and the electric company came out and trimmed them away from the power pole. When I drove up and saw several limbs on the ground, I was a little excited. I never know what I will create with stuff like downed limbs, but they’re always great to have on hand 😉
- Dollar Tree glass vases
- Glue Gun
- Cut log pieces
- Faux snow, you can use salt, sugar etc.
Just simply glue the glass to the log, add faux snow, tea lights and enjoy.
Anytime you have a few limbs laying around and you have access to a miter saw, you can run to the nearest Dollar Tree and grab 3 or 5 glass vases/candle holders and make some of these. Because odd numbers make the most pleasing decor arrangements.
Luckily we didn’t make homemade ice cream over the summer, so I had rock salt in the pantry. I filled the Dollar Tree vases with rock salt popped in a couple candles and a cedar clipping. I think it looks like ice!
They look all Pottery Barn-ish, so go ahead and create your own, DIY glass and wood candleholders 🙂
I love to make my house look pretty without spending too much money, thank goodness for the Dollar Tree!
Here’s a couple other projects that didn’t cost much:
