So I went to Home Depot and bought a fence post, which I had them cut up for me and then I bought the end caps to go on the top and bottom of the post.
I first used some wood glue to attach the end caps to the top and bottom of the post. Then I gave them a couple coats of brown spray paint.
I sanded the edges a little for a bit of a distressed look but it's not too noticeable. I found some candles at Michael's today on clearance that were a bit wider than the standard pillar candles. I added a little vinyl and there you go.
