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 wood rounds (I used 3″ and 6″ rounds)
-1 1/2″ drill bit
Step One: Mark the placement of your tea lights by marking the base of each tea light on the wood round with a pencil.
Step Two: Drill your marked holes as deep as you desire your tea light to sit. For the taller birch round, we went 3/4″ deep, but for the shorter round, we only did 1/4″ deep.
Step Three: Insert your tea lights in their places and light them up for some cozy ambiance!
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

Wondering if anyone has tried this yet? Im currently in the process of making these and the 1 1/2 inch drill bit holes arent big enough for the basic tealights I bought.
Rubyellen any thoughts on what I may be doing wrong?
It looks gorgeous! Love it.
Birchwood is so beautiful. I love how simple and elegant this is.

There is something so pretty about the simplicity or wood slabs and white candles. I love the look of this!
I love the rustic feel of this candle holder. It’s truly perfect for lighting some tea lights on a cold night with a cup of chamomile tea. :] // http://www.itscarmen.com ☼
