We never get tired of beautiful rustic decor – not only is it cozy and charming, but it’s also totally timeless. With fall just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to add a bit of rustic charm to any room in your home.

What You’ll Need

  • 2 pieces of reclaimed wood
  • Half gallon (64 oz.) mason jar
  • 1 roll of natural twine
  • 1 ½ cups brown short grain rice, dry
  • Votive candle
  • 1 glass votive candle holder
  • 2 screw hooks
  • 2 hanging chains (22-inch each)
  • Electrical tape

How to Make a Rustic Candle Sconces

Step 1: Tape it Up

Tape each end of one chain to your mason jar. Leave about 4 inches of chain hanging from each side.

Step 2: Wrap the Lip of the Jar


Use your twine to wrap the surrounds of the jar’s lip. Continue until the tape is completely covered.

Tip: Wind it as tightly as possible so the chain stays secure!

Step 3: Cut the Excess Twine

Cut the excess twine, then tuck in the end that is sticking out.

Step 4: Pull on the Chain


Carefully pull on the chain to make sure it’s completely secure.

Step 5: Lay Down One Wood

Lay down one piece of wood on a flat surface. We used a piece of deck wood (cut into two pieces), but any reclaimed wood will work!
