For Oliver’s 4 month birthday we took a journey to East Sooke Park for a hike. While we were combing the beach for treasures I found a chunk of bark from a birch tree and my DIY brain kicked it into full gear and I before I knew it I had created this DIY in my head. I crafted this little gem in less than 5 minutes once I got back to my mom’s house in BC where we were visiting. I gave her this candle holder as a little thank-you for having us stay with her for two weeks.
To make your own, you’ll need:
- bark from a birch tree
- hot glue gun & sticks
- a pair of scissors
First you’ll want to cut the top and bottom of the chunk of bark in order to ensure it stands up straight. Then take a bead of hot glue and glue either side of the bark together.
That’s it! It couldn’t be any simpler. Instead of using a real tea light candle I am using a better operated alternative. I also added some Black & White Bakers Twine
to add a little flare to it.
TA-DA! Such a simple DIY. The most difficult part is finding the bark!
Let me know if you decide to try this DIY for yourself! If you don’t have access to any birch bark, what would you use instead??
PS: I’ll be sharing this DIY on these fabulous blogs!
