Horse Bit Candles

Here’s two ways to use horse bits in your décor. If you have some old bits laying around in your tack room this is a fun thing to do. I wrapped a D-ring snaffle around a flameless pillar candle and tied leather lacing to hold it together. I was looking at an old curb bit I had and stood it on it’s side and of course, it’s a candle holder! But this one wasn’t too steady so I built a stand out of mahogany and drilled holes for the candles and a hole in the bit to screw it to the wood.

Here’s a different version of the leather wrapping. You could use twine, ribbon or anything you’ve got. I think it would be pretty to add greenery for the holidays.
