This is really the project I wanted to do when I made the Fa La La Blocks. But the batteries for the drill conked out. So here is the idea of how to DIY a candle holder for Valentine’s Day.
I bought the red flameless candles at the Dollar Tree before Christmas. Rather than returning the candles, I decided to make the candle holder for Valentine’s Day.
For this project, I used some scrap pallet wood. Find the center of the top of the wood by drawing diagonal lines from one corner to the other. Carefully place the drill with the paddle bit on the center. Start drilling. It will take a while to get the right depth for the candle to sit in the hole.
The paddle bit makes a small hole within the large one. It is perfect because the flameless candle has a little piece of plastic hanging down by the on/off button.
When the hole was drilled to the right size, the piece of scrap wood was painted with creamy white chalk like paint. It was left over from another project. I had to paint a couple of coats for coverage.
When the paint dried I transferred “Hugs & Kisses” to the front of the piece of wood. For a Rae Dunn look use the font, Desmond. But any font you like will do.
One tip is to use a font that does not need to be perfect. I went back over “Hugs & Kisses” with a black Sharpie. The next step is to sand the wood to smooth it out. And don’t forget to wax it.
Put the flameless candle in and it makes a cute little Valentine’s Day decoration or gift. How to DIY a Candle Holder For Valentine’s Day is so easy you can make more than one in no time. Will you give it a try?
