Wood Branch Candle Holder

I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m here to share another project with you! Lately, I’ve been completely consumed with all things fall! I’m a big fan of fall projects, decorating and baking, so it’s safe to say that I love this season! Today, I thought I’d share one of my latest fall projects, a DIY rustic tea light holder made from a fallen aspen log.

Tree Limb Candle Holder

Not only do they look really pretty, they’re easy to make, and basically free! 😀 We started with your basic aspen limbs that had fallen. We cut each of them to size, making them 4″, 6″ and 8″ tall…

Then, Anthony found the center of each limb…

P.S. I’m working on my latest fall home tour, but feel free to take a peek at last year’s tour in the meantime! Until next time… You can find me on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! And be sure to stop by The Wood Grain Cottage to say hi! Have a wonderful day!

    We picked up an aspen log when we were in the woods getting our Christmas tree last year and I had my sweet husband do this exact thing for me. I love them and have left them out all year and just decorated around them!

  2. I love these. My sister put cupcake liners with mints in the shortest, a tea light in the middle one and drilled a deeper hole in the large on to insert artificial roses in the tallest. They made lovely table decorations.
