How to Make a Rock Candle Holder

The hardest part of this project is finding an appropriate rock. Look for rocks that are flat and smooth enough that you’ll be able to drill safely into them.

If you want to update the look of a room in your house, it helps to pay great attention to detail. Why go with typical home decors when you can have unique ones? If you’re worried it might cost you a fortune, think again. Fun, quirky pieces should not be overly expensive. You can easily DIY your own.

Choose rocks with flat surfaces. Go with rocks of different colors, too for aesthetics. You can make several of these candle holders and put them up on display. These would also be good as a housewarming present, or even during Christmas. You can even paint on the rocks if you want.

Drawing or painting on the rocks will make an otherwise plain rock more attractive.
