Monogram Table Deco from Pallet Wood
Saw one full length pallet wood into 4 equal lengths and one smaller
(There is probably an easier way to do this but this really was trial and error)
Drill holes level to each other on the inside side of 2 pieces of wood. Connect the drilled holes with a piece of dowl and a bit of wood glue. 2 dowls between each connection (8 in total- I know awesome math skills right!?)
Repeat till all 5 pieces of wood are connected
Sand all the sides and edges smooth (as pallet wood tends to be pretty rough.)
Paint the whole thing Vivid White, once dry sand it back as much as desired
Alphabet stencilled on a M & H for my in-laws initials.
Filled in the carved out tops with candles
Ta-Daa a Personalised Monogram Table Decoration**
I love it, and its something a little more personal
and sweat and tears and tantrums and heart felt
**Just so you know I have severely warned them that this "Candle" is purely for decoration value only- Do not Light!! Or if they do, be in front of it at all times. It has not been flame proofed in any way.
Please note: If you do make candles from internet designs or copy this design.... To make this a functional candle do your research on how to make it more flame proof OK!!!
I thought possibly It would be worth cutting the wicks really low or coating them in a flame retarder/blocker
