Does anyone else feel like once you put all your Christmas decor away the house feels…sad?

Sad is never a feeling I want our house to have so I started thinking about how I wanted to decorate it for after Christmas.

Some Christmas decor can remain up all winter if it can be made more neutral.

Like taking the red stems out of the greenery but leaving the actual greenery.

Make these easy DIY wooden house candle holders, perfect decor for any season or holiday

We have a lot of candles out during Christmas too because there is nothing more cozy than the warm glow of candlelight.

I really want to keep the cozy candle vibes but create a more neutral candle holder.

Something that could be used all winter and for other seasons.

So I went hunting for the perfect wooden candle holders and stumbled upon these house candle holders from Etsy.

They are super cute and can be used for every season!

They are a bit expensive though, especially after shipping costs…

So I thought I would grab a few of my favorite WORKPRO® Tools and some scrap wood so that I could DIY my own version for much less.

How to Make DIY Wood House Candle Holders


Wood Candle Holder Sizing

Wood Candle Holder Sizing

For these wood house candle holders I cut my pieces in multiple sizes.

The smallest house is 4″ and the tallest house is 10″.

I used a compact cordless circular saw to cut the pieces of scrap wood down to the different sizes.

To begin with just make straight cuts, the house angles will be cut after the hole is drilled.

After all the pieces are cut down it’s time to drill the 1″ hole.

Using a vise is the safest and easiest way to hold the wood while drilling, but you could also use clamps and clamp the wood to a worktable.

Use the 1″ spade drill bit to drill a place for the copper piece and candle to go, be sure to drill down deep enough for the angle cuts also.

I drilled some of my holes in the center and some on the sides to change things up.

Cutting the House Candle Holder Angles

After the holes are drilled the house angles can be cut.

It’s better to drill the holes first because drilling into angles might make your hole off center and crooked.

I used the circular saw to make 45 degree cuts for the roof of the houses.

For some of the houses I created a tall steep and others I left a flatter middle.

Finishing the Wood Candle Holders

Now that all the cuts are made it’s time to finish the wooden candle holders.

Start by sanding the houses down with 220 grit sandpaper.

Once they are smooth you can move onto painting or staining the candle holders.

I chose to use a bunch of muted color tones on our houses so that they could work for any season!

Painting them black and white or choosing a rich stain would also look amazing.

After the paint dried I applied a clear decorative wax to finish the candle holders.

Finally it’s time to insert the copper pieces into the hole, mine slipped in easily and didn’t have a lot of wiggle room.

If your copper pieces feel loose in the holes you could add adhesive to the outside of the copper piece before inserting it.

I am so glad I decided to give DIY-ing these house candle holders a try, it was the perfect way to utilize my scrap wood.

The only money I spent making these wooden candle holders was the cost of the 3/4″ copper pieces which were less than $3 a piece.
