Do you remember my log candle centrepiece from last year? This one is done in a similar way.
Flickering candles remind me of winters on the farm. With ice storms weighing down power lines, we’d frequently lose power.
As adults attempting to run a 40 acre dairy farm, I’m sure it caused some stress. But as kids, it was an adventure!
We’d huddle together around the kitchen table in our coats, laughing at the puffs of ‘smoke’ in the air, as we played board games by… you guessed it, flickering candlelight.
Candles have a comfort factor to me. While I don’t burn them much due to romping pets and teenage boy, we do light our wood burning fireplace often, offering the same ambiance.
How to make a branch candle centrepiece:
- Cut branches in varying shapes at varying heights, making sure all the cuts are level.
- Find some funky junk apparatus for the candle bases.
- Pre-drill holes under the base board, then screw in branches from underneath.
- Attach the junk candle holders.
- Layer the boards if desired, and add two junk handles.
- And light those candles.
That’s where all those bits and pieces and strange handles came from.
And now we’re all set for the power to go off… junk style. 🙂
So… ready to check out what my friends have made today?
