Thanksgiving Week: Rustic Birch Bark Candle Holder

Back in July when I went camping, “J” picked up this great piece of birch bark while out exploring. I didn’t know at the time what exactly I was going to do with it, but I knew some kind of DIY would be in order.

Fast forward 3 months, and I have finally put this piece of bark to good use. I knew I was going to need some type of centerpiece for my lovely Thanksgiving Table Setting, and this piece of bark was it!

This DIY was not complicated… or by any means expensive. I actually had all the items on hand so there was virtually no costs. The process was also very simple:

  • Measure the bark by wrapping it around the desired glass holder. Cut off excess from the ends.
  • Drill three holes in each end of the bark to thread your twine through.
  • Gently thread twine through each hole, pulling tight so the bark is snug against the glass. Tie at the top (or bottom).
  • Place a tall pillar candle inside the holder, and light it up!

Do you make centerpieces for your holiday tables?
