I wanted to bring in extra light to our yard and was looking for something a bit more refined then the store bought tiki torches. So I made my own candle stakes! I used a small drill bit to hallow out the bottom 1/4 of a stack of taper candles and stuck them atop craft dowels and then into the ground. It’s been an easy, affordable and pretty way to bring extra light to our extended evenings outdoors. Hooray for summer!
