25 Weeks 'Til Christmas: Week 10 Primitive Candle Holder

Only 10 more weeks until Christmas!  I got some homemade gifts taken care of this weekend, but as of next week, we are in the single digits of weeks left until Christmas! 

This week's gift idea is from Better Homes & Gardens and I know exactly who I would like to make these for.  Anyone who is into the rustic or primitive decor/motif in their home, this would be perfect for them!

What You'll Need:
  • Drill
  • Bits
  • 18 gauge wire
  • 3 inch thick pieces of wood or logs
  • Wire Cutters
  • Dripless Tapers
Make It

  1. Using a drill bit to fit the wire, drill an off-center hole in each wood piece.
  2. Cut an 18-inch-long piece of wire for each candle. Glue one end of the wire into the hole. Let the glue dry.
  3. Wrap the wire around candle. Shape the wire end into a curlicue.
How simple is that?!? 

Every Monday through the week of Christmas will be a new homemade gift idea/project. Be sure to check them out! Happy Crafting!
