diy candlestick stand

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 am going to make something out of the box from them. Look, I have made a batch Candlestick Tower Stand from them! Great timing for my new home’s decoration 🙂

This is an easy and quick project to build, all you need to do is glue all the parts and distressed it to add some antique look. Not only that, it is cheap to make too, range from $3 to $6 each.

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!!!
