Here’s a fun candle holder that is easy to make, will look great on any table and with the addition of some fresh herb clippings, can impart a light scent to the air…
Wood blocks are covered in coffee bean bag burlap & given a ring of nails on top that hold a glass votive in place as well as some fresh rosemary.
The heat from the candle warms the fresh-cut rosemary and releases a sent. You can use any herb you like or even a sprig of evergreen or bittersweet for the holidays.
For this project you will need: 3-inch wood squares ( I used a $9.00 untreated fence post from Home Depot that they cut into 3-inch cubes for me at no charge), fabric, glue gun, 2-inch nails, candle votive holders and herb clippings.
Lightly sand cubes to soften rough edges. Trace and cut 6, 3-inch squares from fabric and glue onto each side of cube. Hammer a circle of raised nails into top of cubes – make it large enough to fit your votive candle holder.
Wind herb clipping around ring of nails and drop in votive candle holder.
You could also use these without clippings.
