This was started as a total “scrap” project that I have remade a few times. The first was a gift for my mother-in-law a couple of Christmases ago. I made several square votives with tealights that had two star panels and two plain panels. I cut up several at a time and ended up with an odd number, so I decided to try using the final three to make a hexagon and added the corner triangle pieces. It turned out great so I had to make a few more by request. This was the final one and included an electric bulb instead of a candle.

Looks like a nice design. I think I would have used flamless candles.

Great idea for a child’s room as a nigh light.

Good idea Eric. This is what the customer wanted. It has a standard candelabra base so you could use a flickering bulb, or even a colored one.

Thanks Brian. I hadn’t thought of that but it would be perfect and safe for a child. Plus the glass marbles would make a cool pattern on the ceiling.

Another winner. Great use of scraps. Of course, having to make a bunch more of them means (I assume), getting away from the scrap pile and into the good stuff. I love the design.

Fortunately, (or unfortunately) the scrap pile is far from depleted. Confessions of a wood hoarder.
