The wooden feet that support modern sofas tend to have simple, sculptural shapes, making them well worth elevating from floor to mantel. To customize them into holders for taper candles, look for streamlined versions in unfinished wood at the home-improvement store, then play around with height and color combinations.
These rectangular, fabric-covered glass candleholders call for a clear-drying glue sealant like Martha Stewart Crafts decoupage which is suitable for outdoor use. The adhesive requires significant drying time, so allow a couple of days for this project. Use tiny scissors (needlepoint ones work well) to cut the cotton voile. If the fabric frays, spray it with starch and press before cutting.
