The perfect mod tealight holder...

Wooo! My first post on the BADD Blog! I'm totally stoked ;)
So to keep things flowing and fresh... today is a craft post!

{side note... if you didn't get a chance to read Lauren's post
below - you must! I was a test tester, and they were divine!}

So I came across this modern tealight holder over the holidays,
and was totally obsessed. Seriously, every gift idea was some
variation of the tealight holder.
I found the tutorial on Noodlehead. Her directions are
pretty straight forward - and I love that it's a total low cost,
to no cost project. I had to buy a 1 1/2 inch bit, and the
wood, but if you have some 2x4's hanging around the garage,
even better!

I used maple wood, because my options were limited - but it
worked just fine. I sanded the board - then spray painted it
black. After the spray paint was dry, I sanded the edges a bit,
and distressed it. I love candlelight. A row of tealights, sitting on a romantic table
set for two... pretty much the perfect fit.


  1. Very cute Sara! Any Sewing ideas soon?!

  2. Super cute idea...I'm still enjoying your idea about jars. I can't believe I've thrown those away all these years...

  3. This is such a great idea. We made something similar to this last year (although we never blogged about it). Ours were 4 x 4's that had tea lights inside of them! Thank you for linking up to Sew Woodsy last week. We hope you'll come back today and link up another craft project! Just want to let you know that I featured this on our Facebook page yesterday! :)
