DIY candle holders

Decorative candle holders made of wood

Although the weather may be taking a turn for the worse as autumn slowly creeps in, it’s a lovely time of year for spending cosy evenings at home relaxing on the sofa by candlelight. We want to show you how easy it is to make your own beautiful candle holders. We opted for some stylish wooden holders decorated in gold and black: to achieve this smart metallic effect you can use edding gloss paint markers. They are available in a range of colours including gold, silver and copper.
