One of my favorite crafty Tumblr blogs, 52 Weeks Project, shares how to make your own rustic rope candle holder. The author warns:
“I will be the first to admit that this project is not for the faint of heart. Maybe it was my choice of glue, or the texture of the rope, but making this candle holder was no easy task. Be prepared for a lot of sitting, holding, and sticky fingers.”
No matter how hard it is to make, the finished product sure is pretty. View the tutorial.
