Farmhouse Candle Pedestals

I have five blog notebooks. Five of them. I carry each one around with me at different times and always jot down project ideas I have. Some of those ideas are big, some are small, some work, others don’t. That’s the name of the game though when it comes to being a DIYer. I cannot tell you how many projects I have finished that I never shared because I thought maybe they weren’t important enough for an entire blog post. They are mostly the smaller ones that don’t make the cut. The little details that add that much needed charm to a space. The accessories of a room, I guess you could call them. These are my favorite parts, and I realized I want to share them.

This project is one of the more simple ideas I had. I like to wander around stores on the weekends in hopes that a project will fall into my lap. I came across some little raw wood plaques one night, and after playing around with them for a few minutes thought they would make great Farmhouse Candle Pedestals for some new pillar candles I just bought. So that’s just what I did.

DIRECTIONS:

  • I started by staining the wood plaques with my favorite dark wood stain

  • Once completely dry, I used my hand sander around the edges and top to give them an old, worn look

  • Next, I cleaned off the dust from sanding them, and I used some hemp oil (which I LOVE to use on all my stained wood pieces to give them a finished clean look, and to seal it) on each round plaque

  • You can also use some wood glue to add a small plaque to the top of a larger one to have a layered, taller candle pedestal

And guess what? Set a pillar candle on top and you are done! So. Simple.

    Totally worthy. Love this little DIY. I think these are important for those of us who aren’t as skilled in the DIY arena, gives us options. 🙂 Also, glad to hear I am not the only notebook addict.
