wood bead candleholder

Wood beads used to accent home décor is perfectly on trend! Jazz up a simple LED candle with this easy and fabulous décor DIY.
Step 1

First, insert batteries into your LED candle.

Step 2

Measure the distance around the candle with a piece of plastic stretch cord and add 4" [10.2 cm]. Now, cut that length. Repeat until you have five equal lengths of stretch cord.

Step 3

Slide wood beads on the stretch cord and wrap it around the candle to make sure you had added enough beads. Add more beads if needed, then tie a double knot in the stretch cord. Drop a bit of glue on the knot and let dry. Trim any excess stretch cord.

Step 4

Repeat Step 3 for remaining stretch cord pieces.

Step 5

Slide each cord onto the LED candle and push down to the bottom so they are stacked as desired, then set the LED candle onto the glass candleholder.

Step 6

Measure the last strand of smaller beads to fit around the top edge of the glass candleholder and base of the candle.

Step 7

Repeat Step 3 with smaller wood beads.

Step 8

Add a couple of feathers to the side of the candle, sticking up from the beads, for a final accent.
TIP: This project is only intended for LED candles.
