I wish I had some amazing story why I’ve been M.I.A lately [like I've been sipping margaritas on the beach, getting my hair and nails done while getting a massage, or trapped under something heavy]. Nope. Just a case of the-kids-are-almost-out-of-school-I-don’t-want-to-do-squat blues. Well, that was fun for a week and I have been itching to DIY some crap.
So here we go! I am known around certain parts of my [poor] daughter’s school as “that mom who lugs wood back to her car!” Case in point.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll remember I posted about finding a stack of fallen tree branches while on a hike around my daughter’s school. Well I managed to drag this beauty back to my car while being stared at in absolute disbelief by many parents. That’s how I roll people!
This beauty sat in my garage for a couple months until I got the idea to create a candle holder out of it. It’s super simple and took 30 minutes to make.
You can see I made another one, but decided to keep it raw and left the bark on. [Note: just be sure you don't pick up any branches that have little tenants living in them, aka termites!] Best part of these rustic candle holders is they are FREE to make!
