Horseshoes and a Chunk of Wood get a New Life

Remember a while back I made a beautiful winter wreath from an old horse harness?
You can check it out here.
 
I used horseshoes as part of the decoration for the wreath and I had a few extras.
 
I also had a rescued chunk of rough sawn wood, that I saved from our burn pile.
 
I knew that I wanted to make the wood piece into a candle holder,
but the idea to add the horseshoes came when I laid the chunk of wood on the counter in my workshop next to the box of extra horseshoes.
 
 

The chunk of wood and the horseshoes got a good cleaning to start.
 
 
I measured and marked the wood where it needed to be drilled for the candle holders
 
 
once the five candle holder spaces were drilled
 
 
 the horseshoes were nailed to each end
 
 
I sanded the wood to help smooth out the rough edges
and gave the entire piece a protective matte finish,
then added five votive candles.
 
 
I picture this piece with greenery and flowers around it
as a centrepiece at a rustic, country wedding.
 
It is also a great size for a mantle.
 
 
Considering the wood was going to get burned and the horseshoes were going to scrap,
I'd say they got a new life!
 
 
Don't you just love repurposing projects?
I'd love it if you shared one of your repurposing projects with me.
 
 
 
'til next time,

  4. Love the idea. But, I'm of the belief that a horseshoe in this direction is bad luck and the horseshoes ought to be turned the other way.
