I love sugar molds. They have so many functions and look great in home decor. I wanted to create a candle centerpiece with a sugar mold that would hold smaller candles. For a few hours of time and for less than $20, look what I made!
They are super easy! Want to make one too?

How to Make
- Step one – cut the 4 x 6 down to 30″.
- Measure out the hole for your candles. I came in 3″ from each end and then measured every 2″ for each candle. I wanted my candles offset so I brought each hole in 1 1/4″ from each side (I explain this in the video better).
- Drill all the holes around 1/2″ to 1″ deep.
- Lightly sand the wood.
- Stain with dark walnut stain – see directions on labels for more information.
- Wipe excess stain off with rag and allow to dry.
