Driftwood Candle Holder

This project is super super super easy. I went down to the beach and found some larger driftwood logs and dragged them home. Next, I preserved my driftwood, which you can learn to do by checking out this tutorial here. Although, these pieces were too big for my bucket, so I used the hubby’s cooler. And when the time came to poor boiling water over the logs; I poured it over the first half, used my oven mitt to rotate the log in my sink and poured the water over the second half. Then I finished the preservation process as usual. 

Once my logs were dry I used the drill and a 1 1/2” inch drill bit to drill holes for the candles. I periodically stuck a tea light in the hole to make sure it was wide/deep enough. 

Once, I was done drilling I put candles in the log and called it a day! 

Did I mention this project was super easy??? The hardest part was dragging these logs home!


  1. That is a brilliant idea! Going to have to find myself a suitable log now! And thank you for the tutorial on how to preserve driftwood (that's what I was Googling when I came across your website. You have a beautiful home - And Jakey's room is brilliant!)

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by! I'm so happy you found my blog helpful! Good luck finding a log and thanks for your kind words!
