With less than 1 week until Christmas, I'm squeezing in a quick DIY project for those of us that still need to finish holiday shopping and decorating. I stumbled across a very stylish DIY candle holder on Nalle's House. Nalle positions the candle holder as an advent candle, but this holder could work as a table centerpiece that could survive past the holiday season.
All you need are some wooden beads, leather string and a drill. I like the raw wood of the beads, but you can always paint them or buy extra beads and paint them so you can swap them in and out. See the full tutorial here: DIY Beaded Candle Holder
