Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Step 1

Glue heart image in the centre of the wood.

I also use sellotape over the top to make sure image stays in place.

Step 2: Step 2

Before i cut the the heart out i used the forstner bit to make a shallow recess for the tea lights in the top side of the box and also in the heart.

Step 3: Step 3

Time to cut the heart out and also the block in half.

I then cut about a 1/3 off the back of the heart as i felt it was to thick but thats up to you.

Step 4: Step 4

I sanded until smooth.

I used sand sealer to seal the wood then sanded lightly once dry.

I used clear laquer to finish.

I used epoxy to glue the glass holder in place.

Put candles in and your all done.

If you get stuck watch the video it goes into more detail.
