DIY Candle Holder?

200801230727I often come across nice looking products online only to be shocked by the price. While the $45 that they are asking for this candle holder isn't outrageous, I can't ever imagine myself spending that kind of money on it. Looking at it though, I can see that this same idea would lend itself very well to a DIY approach. All it would take is a scrap of wood from Home Depot, or even an old cutting board from a thrift store, a hole saw, and some dark stain. Not only could you save some money, but it could be a fun project too. For those looking to go the easy route, you can buy it at Hip and Zen for $45.

Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
