I love displaying candles throughout my house. Honestly, they don't all get lit that often, but something about just having a few candles out on display makes things seem cozier. There's something so beautiful and peaceful about a little flickering flame. Now that fall is in full swing and the days are much shorter, I've been trying to be extra mindful about trying to light some candles in the evening for some relaxing ambiance. I've made a birch pillar candlestick holder before, but this time I wanted to do another for some tea lights. It really is so easy; just check it out below…
-birch rounds (I used 3" and 6" rounds; I got mine from Michael's, but this one is similar)
-1 1/2" drill bit
See, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3! I know, it does take a little know-how with the drill, but if you have that (or can enlist someone who does), this project won't take you long at all. I've already used the tea lights a couple times for a craft night with some friends or evening dinners outside. I think a bunch of birch rounds in different heights and widths, with tea lights and candlesticks, spread along the middle of a table would be wonderful decor for your Thanksgiving table. What do you think? Of course, make sure to leave room for the turkey, stuffing, and pie! –Rubyellen
