I received a box of the knob-making base, knobs, and other related hardware from D.Lawless Hardware a few months ago, and I know I will make something out of the box from them. Look, I have made a batch of easy DIY Candle Holder from them! Great timing for my new home’s decoration 🙂

Besides using the tower stand as a candlestick, it can be used as a display stand for small festive items, e.g. pine cones, small Christmas ornaments, Easter eggs, small pumpkins, cupcakes, cake pops, etc.

Happy making!!!
