Maria Provenzano shows us how to string together a fabulous DIY to elevate your candlesticks at home.


  • Candlesticks with grooves
  • Wood beads to size of diameter of the grooves
  • Elastic cording
  • Scissors


  • Spray paint
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Deli cups
  • Stain
  • Rags


  1. If you want to stain or paint the beads, do so now. Place them on a bamboo skewer to paint with ease. Rest skewer on a deli cup, set aside to dry.
  2. Measure how much elastic you’ll need to make the beaded bracelet. Wrap the elastic around the groove, cut with a few inches of excess.
  3. String the beads onto the elastic. Knot to secure.
  4. Cut any excess cord.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 to make as many bead bracelets as desired for the candlesticks.
  6. Slide the beaded bracelets onto the candlesticks.
  7. Arrange into your décor and enjoy!
