candleholderHow To Create Some Candlestick Frames


I saw something like this online, but it was a bit different.  I figured that I would just make my own and do it even easier!!  These are great to decorate a table, or a shelf.  They would be the perfect gift for family with pictures in them.  I decided to just do a little saying in mine, to make it a bit different.

You could change these up with whatever color, type of frame you use, or anything else.  Easy to do and can be made into anything.  You could even make some little tiny ones for table settings, or I thought of even making some smaller ones for a potluck to show what was available, etc.  Any way you do it, it would turn out great!!

I hope you like it!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on, and share this #TBCCrafters craft on your social media channels – thanks!!


How To Create Some Candlestick Frames

Materials/Tools Used:

  • Picture Frames (I used 5×7)
  • Candleholders
  • Small Wooden Dowels
  • Craft Adhesive
  • Spray Paint
  • Photos/Artwork
  • & Time!


I started by putting the wooden dowel I was using, into the candleholder to measure where I would need to cut it.  You’ll just need a few inches, so that you can attach the frame to the stick.

Then, using a PVC cutter, I trimmed the dowel into the sizes that I needed.

Now, using some craft adhesive, I added a bit to the top of the candle holder and inserted the dowels.

To secure the dowels even more, I used some black clay.  You could use whatever color that matches what you’re going to paint the pieces, but this just helps to secure the dowel.


Once the glue and clay had dried, I took the pieces outside, to give them a makeover.  Using some spray paint, I just added a few coats, and let it dry.


Now, you can just insert your photos, or whatever you wish into the frames.


Now, I just added some glue to the back of the frame (making sure to center it), and attached them to the dowels.  You can always change these photos out later, since you are just gluing the dowel to the bottom of the frame.



Now, you can just display them where you wish, or give them as a gift.

How quaint! I love the vintage look of these, and I’d like to make several for photos I have of my grandparents, etc.
