Hello September! I am so happy to see you.
Always loving natural elements, when I spotted several branches turned into votive holders, I spied a DIY. When I was in PA, I walked around my dad’s property asking which branch I could have. After I finagled my branch, I drug it over to my brother–who was there helping my dad build a shed. They’re the real DIY’ers…I just pretend. Well, I asked if my brother if he would chop it up the branch into piece for me, and this is what I ended up with.

Once the branch was cut into the sizes that I wanted, I used my Dremel and a chisel to make the place for the candle to sit. Chiseled first and then smoothed everything out with the Dremel.

And just like that, I got my branch votive holders.

Right now, there’s working as my center piece for my table. But I can easily see them growing legs and walking into just about any room in my house. I love how they turned out!!

**As my brother pointed out, if you make you’re own–be careful when you’re lighting your candles. The holders are made of wood.**

    Being an art lover myself, just love it. This is the perfect addition for adding antiquity to the Christmas center table. Thanks for an interesting idea, the branches in my area do not have the same color as yours. Will be on the search for the same finish as I simply love the effect.

      This is a great idea… Thank you.
      I think I will try it with some firewood that is already cut, and use a door knob drill bit which should make a perfect circle down, then chisel it out. I wonder if you sprayed a coat of clear polyurethane or another material if you could make it flame resistant? Hmmm. Going to research this. It didn’t say in your tutorial, but it looks as if you stripped the bark. Did you use anything special for that?
