DIY - Birchwood Candle Holders Centerpiece


On our recent trip to N. Michigan, my sister had this 4' 1/2" Birchwood log in her garage and asked if I wanted it and I said sure!!  This is an authentic piece of Birchwood from N. Michigan and I immediately knew I wanted to make candle holders out of them for the holidays.  I had hubby cut the log into about 12 pieces, in various sizes and then had him drill a hole at the top, the size of a tealight candle.  I had some leftover canvas fabric from my table runner, I cut into 10" strips, 1 1/2" wide.

I took a strip of the canvas fabric and glued around a piece of wood.

I placed the strip in a different position of each piece, mainly because I wanted the knot to be exposed, to give the piece some "character".

I then tied some jute twine around the strip and piece of wood.

Here are a few I used for my centerpiece.  I had some leftover battery operated tealights from last year that fit perfectly in the candle holders.






Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours and remember to savor every moment!
