Acorn And Candle Centerpiece
The colors of Autumn combine in this easy to make project adorned with faux acorns painted in wine, copper and orange. Measuring 7" x 5.25" (without candles) this centerpiece makes an impressive display for a table or buffet. Traditional tapered candles (mine are 10") nested in white wooden candle cups are attached to the wooden bin beneath them. The bin comes with a weathered look giving the centerpiece a unique canvas for your painted "Give Thanks" message. Hot glue anchors the acorns and candle cups to the bin. The tutorial includes the free stencil for the lettered message. Get ready for the holidays and give thanks for simple projects like this!
