Holy Shmoly Ohllie!
I apologize to all of you who have emailed for a how to on this project. I am finally finding some windows of free time to get on here!
Of course the version of these candle hangers will be slightly different 'cause the store to buy those finials is closed until after Memorial Day.
But I figured many of you might have a hard time finding those anyways, so I modified it with pieces I am sure you can find!
We are going to make these lovelies!
What you will need!
3 Fence Post toppers (Found at Home depot..we also used these for this tutorial!)
2x2 cut down into 3 sizes....(2) 14inch pieces and (1) 12 inch piece
1x4 cut down into 3 sizes... all 3 1/2 inches long
Pin Nailer or Screw Gun
3 hooks that look like this. (Found these at Walmart for 2.97 each! Yikes! But I like the two heights)
and these little guys...
I am not sure what they are called but I got a big package of them at the local craft store. They are bowled on the other side.
And if your lucky you could add a slave to your list too!
I had my man slave on hand to help out....tehe...he hates when I call him that!
Now let's begin shall we?!
First take your 1x4 pieces and center them on your 2x2 like so..
If you don't havea pin nailer or screw gun to nail it down I am sure wood glue would work great. Just be patient and let it dry!
Next, pin nail the base you just made to the fence topper. Like so...
Then, take your hooks and screw them in. I did mine fairly close to the top of the 2x2.
Now, you are ready to add the top.
Dab a little wood glue to the edges of the bottom of these wood pieces and press it down to the top. Make sure you wait and let the wood glue dry fully!
When the toppers are dry, fill in the top holes with a little wood filler. Let it dry and sand it down.
Now you re ready to paint. Usually when I teach a Make and Take class we just use indoor paints. But if you are doing this yourself....I suggest to take 1/2 the time and use spray paint!
Walmart .98 spray paint! Gotta love it!
Give it a coat or two!
And complete lovely Candle hangers that are versatile and fun to use!
