Our Walmart sells a similar style candle holder for five bucks and Hobby Lobby always has these bad boys in stock! Plus, it seems as though Hobby Lobby is always having a sale.
You can find inexpensive boards at Lowes for around $4. You would probably want 4 pieces: one long piece for the front, bottom and back with the last piece cut into squares to make the compartments. An easy weekend project! You could even make a smaller version for the entry way and place things like flowers in each section!
One more trip to Lowes for paint, wood and nails!
