Candlesticks

We are going to show you how to make some fabulous candlesticks on the cheap
And ALL BY YOURSELF!
Seriously people....that is the best part!

All you need is a 4x4....
and fence pieces back in the deck and fence dept. @ Home Depot.

To get started.....
Cut your 4x4 to whatever sizes you want your candlesticks to be! 
(I like mine tall and I always cut three in a pair and mix and match them around a room)


 Take your fence piece and pin nail it to the bottom. If you don't have a pin nailer, you could screw it together or wood glue it! I have done all three and all three work fabulously.



Now do the same thing and pin nail it to the top.

 It should look like this above picture.
Next sand these puppies down and paint your color or colors of choice.

And you now have these. 
(You can add hooks, frames, whatever accessories and flare you like. Just make them your own and express who you are!)
These are the ones I have displayed in my bedroom.
And here are some my sisters  made.
Instead of the fence ends they just used 1x4 as the base and topper.

Happy Crafting everyone!

Go make yourself some candlesticks!

  47. Okay so I went to home depot yesterday and bought my post and got it cut. Now off to putting them together, sanding and painting. Great project. I want to do one with a hook and make it a wreath stand - those can be so expensive.
