I love the look of grubby candles, but I wanted a way to keep them forever. This candelabra uses pillar candles, grubbied up, with holes drilled in them to hold a battery operated light.
The base of the candelabra is a big piece of rustic looking lumber which is aged to perfection.
I drilled three holes to hold the weathered drink holders which I knew I would one day find a use for.
These are thick wire made into a spiral shape, with a long piece to stick in the ground.
With the long piece cut to varying lengths, they were glued into the piece of lumber.
The candles are just cheap pillars from the dollar store. I drilled a hole to fit the battery operated tea lights in with a hole saw.
The handles are from an old Hibachi barbeque.
They were easy to attach - just a couple of holes drilled in the side of the lumber, and bob's your uncle, a funky and rustic candelabra, ready to light your porch.
It fits perfectly on a railing or beside the door.
