Create one of a kind, eclectic candle stick holders using these simple tips.
Today, I’m partnering with my friends at Bernzomatic to share how you can make these DIY eclectic candle stick holders. I have been having fun playing around with the Bernzomatic torches to see what types of finishes and looks I can achieve with them. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays and I thought these DIY eclectic candle stick holders would look perfect on my mantel.

I love how these turned out! They are so unique and perfect for the theme that I was imagining for my Fall and Halloween styling this year.
Here’s what the candle stick holders look like in their raw natural state. You can buy these natural candle stick holders in most craft stores.
DIY Eclectic Candle Stick Holders
What you need:
- Bernzomatic Detail Torch ST2200T
- Bernzomatic butane cylinder
- Natural candle stick holders
- WATER-based acrylic paint
- Paint brush
Step 1: Follow the instructions on how to add fuel to the Bernzomatic Detail Torch ST2200T with the butane cylinder.
Once you have enough fuel, you’re ready! The great thing about the Bernzomatic Detail Torch ST2200T is that it has a continuous flame lock so you can keep the torch going.
Step 2: Use the flame to torch the candle stick holders.
The fine tune precision flame on this torch is awesome for working on smaller projects just like this one. It also has three interchangeable settings: fine soldering, hot air blower and pinpoint flame.
Step 3: Apply your water based paint on the candle stick holder.
Please make sure to use WATER based paints as you don’t want to have any fire accidents!
The photo above shows the process. You can use any color paint and I went with a rose metallic acrylic paint. I love how the dark torched grains show through the paint.
Step 4: After your paint has completely dried, torch it again.
This last step allows you to see more of the defined torched grains and creates a nice contrast with the paint. It’s a little bit spooky, eclectic and just plain cool.
I am so digging them up on my mantel for Halloween! I styled the mantel with coordinating rose pink metallic and coral colors. The faux florals complement the candles and faux pumpkins.
I can see these same candlestick holders being styled on a tablescape. I hope this give you inspiration on what you can produce using the Bernzomatic hand torch ST2200T. The colors are endless and you don’t have to stick to just candle stick holders.
Bonina is happy to be out for her favorite season and approves of the mantel styling.
