DIY branch candle holder

I made this based on a candle holder I saw at West Elm.

super simple:

find a branch.

trim/cut to size (make sure you lay it on a flat surface as you're cutting so that you can see how it will sit on the table when finished)

drill holes about 1/4" deep and the diameter of your candles.

spray w/ metallic spray paint.

    So cool! I bet you could even light the candles, put a drip where you want them and then stick the candle on with the warm wax.

    I've been wanting to do this with a big gnarled piece of driftwood for our downstairs fireplace that doesn't work.
