Today another idea of mine comes to light :) I had some birch bark sheets lying around and two old and not too good-looking candles in the drawer so I thought 'Why not stick it all together?'. Half an hour later I had something like this:
The small tree trunk piece on the left was supposed to be a candleholder, I wanted to make a hole at the top to put a tealight in but the birch turned out to be an inch too narrow so it just stayed the way you can see it here :)
In the close-ups you can see how I managed to stick the bark to the candles, look carefully:)..... Pins! One pin in every corner (or more where necessary) did the job.
Today (two days after "the candle idea") I saw this on potterybarn:
Looks so beautiful... I've not given up on the idea, just need to find a bigger birch branch in the garden (and find someone to cut it off for me :P)
I also put together this simple piece, it just needs some more acorns:
My white clay mushrooms also go well with autumn so they came back from the drawer exile :) (found the idea somewhere on craftberrybush).
If you look closely, in most of the photos you can see these:
My latest purchase - vintage keys. Great, right? :D
I suppose that's all for today so to finish off more photos of the prototype candle :)
Have a great week! :)
