I found this roll of half birch branches last year around Christmas but can’t remember where I bought it and can’t find it online.
When I remember, I will post the link here.
You can use sticks from your yard for an equally rustic look but free!
Steps to Make a Rustic Candle Holder
- gather supplies above
- cut strip of branches correct length to completely wrap around candle holder
OR if using sticks, cut sticks to the length you would like (mine are 3″)
- lay roll of Glue Dots sticky side down on birch branch backing
- remove backing paper from glue dots
- wrap branches around candle holder
That’s it! In hardly any time, you have a pretty rustic candle holder.
