DIY Copper Candleholder

Copper_candle_holderOk, I might be going a little copper crazy but I am just really into it. Here is a great DIY tutorial to make a copper pipe candleholder. I have it on the mantel but I think it would look cool as a holiday tabletop centerpiece with fresh flowers and greenery. Industrial chic at its best and a Rabbit Rabbit original!

Supplies:
Copper pipe  (I bought a 10ft pipe at Home Depot and cut it down into approx. 3″ pieces)
Pipe Cutter
Five 1/2″ copper pipe tee fittings
Candles

The first step is cutting the copper pipe into four 3″ inch pieces. The pipe cutter is easy to use. Place the pipe between the rotary blades, tighten using the orange knob, and rotate the cutter in a circular motion around the pipe. Re-tighten the blade and repeat. It will take a few cycles before the blade is able to cut through the pipe.

Once you have the pipes cut fit the 3″inch pieces into the copper tee fittings. I didn’t want to fully commit to keeping the pieces in this configuration so I didn’t use any adhesive. They fit together pretty snuggly with just a quick tap.

And that’s it! You will have to align them once you place on a flat surface and insert the candles, but what a great pop of color. Good luck and let me know how it turns out #RabbitRabbit.
