Modern Rustic DIY Candle Holders

Happy Friday friends! Welcome to part 2 of my Rustic Chic Thanksgiving Table!  On Monday I shared part 1 + a really clever DIY made from birch slices, you can find it HERE. I am so excited to be sharing my table and project along with 12 other amazing ladies {love these girls!} thanksgiving tablecapes as well {links at the bottom of post}! City Farmhouse-Rustic Fall Tablescape-plaid, wool, faux fur, wood & gold

Along with my table I am sharing a really easy DIY, perfect for the holidays. I am so inspired by the idea of mixing contrasting styles like modern + rustic and had some left over wood from THIS project & thought huh….what could I make?! Candle Holders!!!

  4. The furs on your benches – are they ones you made or have you bought others? I am thinking of making one as you did last Christmas. I want them really fluffy, and I can’t find fabric.
