I have been wanting to make some wooden wall sconces for a long time.
I love candles and seeing them lit up on the wall makes the room feel so cosy.
So, last week I put together my first wall sconces.
I used some scrap wood and cut 2 different size rectangles and nailed
them together at right angles. I also had some scrap moulding
which I attached to the front of each sconce with Liquid Nails.
Then I painted them white and added a picture hanger to the back.
I had the glass candle holders in my stash, awaiting their new sconces. :)
I also drilled two holes on either side of the glass holders and
threaded twine through for decoration and to hold them in place.
Then I hooked them securely over nails on the wall.
I've placed them on the wall in the lounge/dining room so I can
enjoy them at night and during the day.
And here they are all lit up.
