Creating birch bark holder for candles
- Birch bark
Consider making a birch bark holder for candles. For that purpose, you will have to drill out the interior, followed by lining it with the foil. You can then take the vertical pieces and wrap them using a ribbon to make a festive center piece. Other trees with textured or coloured bark will work well, too.
Creating candle with basket
- Woven basket
- Pine cones
You can also consider popping a decorative candle in a woven basket surrounded by outdoor pine cones. Not only this, you can also add more beauty to it by adding glitter, a bow, or fake snow.
Creating hanging decoration
- Dried flowers
Visit a nearby craft store, look for interesting little images and choose the ones that you like. In this case it is a little bird. Attach it to the top of an outdoor pine cone and hang it from a door. Different ribbons, pieces of veil, dried flowers or seed pods from your garden can be used to enhance this hanging decoration.
- Dried flower
- Gold or silver paint
- Seed pods
Snip off the dried flower heads from ornamental grasses and make a little bouquet tied with a festive ribbon. You canadd dried flower heads, seed pods on stems or sticks to the center piece. Paint them with gold or silver paint for a metallic sheen.
