Wood Branch Candle Holder

Hey everybody! How was your Thanksgiving? Here is a great DIY fall decor idea, from Infarrantly Creative. I love the rustic-ness in these candle holders!

And for the next month (I’m not sure how long) we won’t be having a computer so I probably won’t be posting anything for a while, unless I use my iPod but Safari always crashes when I try there 😡 … but I’ll definitely try.

The craft:

Well, happy craftin’!
