This is one of our most popular DIYs, and for good reason. These are awesome candleholders, and if you’re handy with a saw and a drill you can bang off a bunch of these puppies in no time. It’s even easier if you happen to have access to some big burly guy who’s willing to do it for you, while you sit on the couch with a coffee and supervise. Then it’s a really easy craft.
In any case, a few fallen branches and some common tools are all it takes to make yourself a dozen or so of these rustic beauties. I use mine all the time. The best part of having so many of them is that you have OPTIONS. I love options. A cluster on the dining room table? Check. A pair on the mantle? Check. A few groupings of three around the living room? Check. See? Lots of options. You can even change up the look daily. It’s the perfect project for an indecisive, commitment-phobic decorator like me.
We have so many people come back to check out this post, that I thought it was a good time to have another look. You can find the full how-to here. And for our newer readers, I’m hoping these pictures convince you to give them a try. Grab some logs and a few tools and you’re good to go. The big burly guy is optional.
