I finally got around to using the great pieces of driftwood we collected during our little Kauai getaway. I made candle holders!
If you already have a drill, then these are super easy to make. You just need your driftwood, and a drill bit that can make 1 1/2″ holes. I picked one up for about $8.
First, I used my tea candles to figure out exactly where I wanted them to sit on the driftwood. Then I drilled away. Make sure to used extreme caution when handling a drill, work on a safe surface, and wear protective eyewear. I also recommend holding your wood in place with some sort of clamp.
Now clean them up with a vacuum, drop in your candles, and…
Not only do my driftwood candle holders make the perfect addition to our coastal navy bedroom, they’re also a great keepsake from our trip!
How did you prepare the driftwood ahead of drilling ? Did you clean it somehow ? Also did you use any kind of finishing spray?
