Deck the Halls with Dee – Wooden Candle Holder


Are you ready for more Christmas Caroling?! Today we have fun project from Dee of the CSI Project {Don’t forget to link up your projects!}:

Hi Chicken Scratch NY Readers! I am thrilled to be guest posting here today. Alecia has kindly guest posted on my blog before, so here I am on hers and it is an honor!

My name is Dee and my blog home is The CSI Project!

My mission is to encourage you to Create.Share.Inspire so every week we do just that on the blog. Each week is a new challenge from crafting, to DIY, to cooking and even photography. Come by everyday for a great tutorial and then you can link up and take part in the challenge. Who knows you may take home the top pick or be in the Top 10!

I love this time of year. From decorating my home, to baking and Christmas parties, I love it all! Mr. CSI(my husband), tells me that I should have been an elf because I live for holidays and traditions. Maybe so but I think it makes life fun and creates memories. I am all about creating memories.

So, when I heard about the Christmas carol series here, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I chose the song, Deck the Halls with an emphasis on “Fa-la-la-la-la.”

Go ahead, sing it along with me!

One day, while in Home Depot, I came across these wood pieces. They are for chicken coops, I am guessing. Who knows? But I took one look and thought, Candle Holders. Do you see it?

The best part, they were .99 cents a piece.

So, I picked up a few because they will make great holiday gifts for friends.

Then, my favorite part-crafting!

All I used for these was paint, Martha Stewart Stencils, sand paper and flameless candles.

It is really that easy.

First, I got to painting. I chose red.

Then, I took Martha Stewart stencils to make my Fa-La-La. I love these stencils because they are self adhesive so you don’t need to tape them down. They work great on glass too. I recommend getting some. I love them!

I then grabbed white paint and used my stencils.

Let the paint soak in and then remove.

This was a fun font, I think.

Then, I gave my whole candle holder a sanding with my sand paper and added my candles.

I sat it down the center of my table and now I have a fun centerpiece with candles.

A very special thank you goes out to Alecia for having me at Chicken Scratch NY. You are always welcome at The CSI Project and of course, your readers too! Come link up, be inspired and more importantly inspire others!


Happy Holidays, my crafty friends!!!

From my family to yours!
