10 foot long birthday candelabra

10 foot long birthday candelabra

Some birthday’s just seem like they need more. More candles, more brightness, more party. This candelabra is perfect for such an occasion. Fill it with 60 candles like we did for a huge milestone birthday and watch your guest of honor light up with joy. It’s a simple piece to pull together and I love how it really becomes a substantial centerpiece to the entire party room.

To make the 10 foot candelabra, purchase a 4x4x10 piece of wood from a local hardware store. You can get one similar to ours for under $10. Decide how many candles you’d like to place in your holder and measure out the drill spots with a ruler. Use a medium size drill bit to drill down into each hole and then fill with the candles. I love these colorful candles, but any party ones would work. We’ve decided to keep the candelabra as a centerpiece for all our summer gatherings outside.

More unique birthday candles, and remember when we made a candle out of matchsticks? That was fun!

    I love this idea! I really hate the dull number-like candles. If I am turning 36 I definitely want 36 candles. Great idea.
