I love bringing the outdoors in. These log candle holders are exactly that! Made from logs out of my own backyard they make the perfect home decor accessories for any time of year.

Log Candle Holders Supplies:
- 1.5″ Forstner bit (This is the set I own and I use it all of the time)
- Battery Operated tea lights (I like the ones that flicker like these)
- Mitre Saw
- Some logs or large tree branches
Log Candle Holders Instructions:
Step 1: Cut your log in varying lengths so your candles will be different heights
Step 2: Soak your logs in bleach water to kill any unwanted bugs that may be hanging out inside
Step 3: Attach a clamp or vise grip to your log so that you have something to hold on to if needed.
Step 4: Begin drilling. Drill down about 1/2″ to accomodate the tea light
Step 5) Add battery operated tea light and enjoy.
That is it! This stylish home decor project was easy, inexpensive and fast. While you are out making these DIY Log Candles go ahead and create a Log Centerpiece to make a set. Bundle the log and candles with a little burlap to create the perfect gift! I know I wouldn’t mind receiving these beauties as a gift.
