Rock candle holders

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to your forum and I'm wondering if anyone out there knows how to make rock candle holders? I don't want to make the oil ones, I actually just want to drill a hole and place a tea candle holder in it. I live near Lake Superior and have access to tons of beautiful, round, smooth granite rocks. I think I would need a diamond drill bit but I'm not sure how I'd secure the rock while I'm drilling. Any suggestions would be so welcomed!! Thanks

DW actually bought me something like that for a gift - its a geode (layered kind, not the kind with crystals in it) and thats exactly what it is. Its cut in half, and has a tealight hole in it and when you light it, it glows really nice.

Not an answer for you, but the thought did cross my mind that this is something you may have better luck if you asked in a lapidary group.

Ooops - not geode, agate (I'm not a rockhound) :) These are what they look like: http://www.littlegemsrockshop.co.uk/acatalog/T_Light_Holders.html. Turns out there are tons of these holders out there: http://www.rockcandles.com/candleholders.html
