Votive Candle Holder

Just as the moon provides a sliver of light in the night sky, this votive candle holder can subtly light up your room. It's made from repurposed wine and whiskey barrels and has 5 votives, with your choice of either clear glass that are flush mounted or frosted glass which are raised slightly above the stave. You can also choose between wine or whiskey barrel staves.

Each votive holder is handmade, sanded smooth, and finished with a semi-gloss spar urethane that really brings out the natural colors of the barrel stave. They measure between 34"-37" long depending on the barrel it's made from.

PRO TIP: Place a few drops of water in the votive before your burn a candle. The water will help the burnt wax slide out of the glass votive a lot easier.

The difference between barrels:

While each barrel is slightly different from the next, it basically boils down to the color. Wine and champagne barrels are varying shades of brown and red on the inside and usually a tan oak color on the outside. Whiskey, rum, and tequila barrels are charred on the inside and are usually light to dark brown with patches of black left over from the charring process. The staves are generally thinner width-wise than other barrel types. They also have lots of character on the outside of the staves. Beer barrels are almost always old wine or whiskey barrels and tend to have the same characteristics as such.
