Faux Tree Candle Holders

I recently made some real tree branch candle holders but I realized not everyone wants to saw and drill.  I came up with a way for you to still enjoy the same look in a simpler and inexpensive way to make them yourself!

I will make 2 different kinds for you so you can pick what you like – or make both for different heights.
One will be using a glass candle holder. Use one like this ready to go, or buy a glass candle holder and use real or fake candles inside.
The other candle is a battery operated LED candle.

I found some contact paper that had the wood like background color I was looking for.

Measure the candles on the contact paper and cut them to the right size per candle.

Using Dixie Belle Paint in the color Midnight I will be adding accents to the contact paper to make it look more wood like.

Using your paint brush, get a little of the paint on it, and lightly dab your brush onto the contact paper.

Continue working your way around the candle until you get the desired look you want.

Let it dry completely and you’re done!

Place them where you want them displayed.

I love the way they turned out and I think they would make great gifts as well!
