Geometric Wooden Candleholders
Remember playing with wooden blocks as a kid—or learning to draw with them in art class? Those same educational toys can be transformed into modernist candleholders and centerpieces with a quick trip to the hardware store and a coat of paint.
- Geometric shapes-cylinders, squares, cones, spheres-in wood
- Wood glue
- Craft paint and brush
- Ask your hardware store to drill a hole in the wood shape that will be holding the candle.
- Stack the shapes in a pattern of your preference and join them with wood glue. The shape with the candle hole should be stacked on top.
- Paint the blocks with the color of your choice. We used white and gold and left some sides bare for a naturally gorgeous look.
