Last week I started working on these candle holders. I made them in sets of 3. I cut an 8″, 6″ and 4″ piece of a branch and then I drilled out the top with a 1 1/2″ bit. I had to figure out how to clamp them down for the drilling, so the I bought a large C clap, that only cost $12. Then I just fit placed a tea light in each one. Now when the candle burns out, I can just replace it with another one. These are going to last for years and years. I’m just so pleased with myself. Do you ever do that? Surprise yourself with a “Wow, I did it!”.
I’m selling the sets at a craft fair tomorrow and my family might be getting some for Christmas. Don’t birch trees just have the most beautiful bark?
