Twigs for Fall Candle

I have this candle holder that I bought at Michael's in a clearance sale, but it always looked blah to me.   I was looking through a candle catalogue and got a great idea to "twig" this one up.  I cut some twigs from a tree got a fall pick from the dollar shop and plugged in the glue gun.

I started by taking all of the berry twigs from the pick and making the wire stem into a circle.  I then glued twigs to the circle with the glue gun.  I also put some fall twigs in between.  Then I inserted it into the candle holder with the candle.  I then attached some fall berry twigs to the candle holder.  Still one more step-- Add a little ribbon that I had left over from my Ribbon Pumpkin (also posted to my blog).

The following is the final result.   However,  if you decide to use this idea, it is strongly recommended that you use a non-flame candle :-).


  1. Oh what a beautiful candlestick. I love the twigs, berries and the beautiful plaid ribbon. So pretty and so creative. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
