Rustic Candle Holder

Here’s another great and simple idea for a gift. Find a nice log or a thick branch, using  a hand plane, flatten the bottom just enough so that it sits flat and doesn’t roll around, but not so much that you loose the natural shape of the wood. Then use a 1.5 inch flat drill bit to cut round holes in the top. These will be exactly large enough to fit a votive candle. Attach it, or not, to a nice piece of wood, add some felt pads to the bottom so it doesn’t scratch your table and presto, rustic elegance! I will be making more of these and they will be up in the store in the very near future.
