Upcycled Pine Tree Branch Candle Holder


When our office was about to dispose our Christmas tree early this month, I asked them if I could keep the trunk so I could use it for a craft project. I have been eyeing this birch branch votive set from Terrain and thought about doing a pine tree version.


I didn't have the right tools for this project so I was lucky that the carpenter from the maintenance department where my mom works was kind enough to help me. 


I asked him to cut the tree crosswise in 4 inches, 3 inches, and 2 inches. The smaller the diameter, the shorter the cut.


This was the result:


And then he sanded both ends to produce a smooth surface. The dust from the pine made the workshop smell like Christmas!


Sanding the surface also brought out the nice rings of the tree. Look at the pretty circles!



I traced the tea light candle on the wood and the carpenter drilled through it.


Here is the end product:


Different sizes from two to four inches tall.


They look nice when lit up.



You could still smell the pine tree and the sap is still there. I am thinking of applying a coat of varnish to protect the candle holders from insects.


You like? :)


I want to make more of these but the next batch of pine tree won't be around until Christmas time. I am considering a different tree though. I just need to look for a place to find good tree branches.

Last year December, My lover was cheating on me and was not also give me the attention that a man should give to a woman,And really that was troubling my mind and tearing my heart apart to the extent that i was not concentrating in the office the way i use to before the break up by my lover.And before that incident,I always see how my boss use to love his wife so much. I was binging to think that i was not doing the right thing to him that will make him love me forever,So i really gathered my courage and went to my boss wife office to ask her the secret that made her husband love her so dearly,In the first place she refused in telling me,She asked me why i am asking her such a question,That if is it not normal for every man to love his wife.I told her the reason that made me ask her about this question,That my lover started cheating on me lately,When i knelt down before her for her to see my seriousness in this issue that i went to ask her,She opened up to me by telling me that i should not tell anybody about what she want to tell me,The wife to my boss started to say to me that she used a very powerful spell on his husband to love her,And the spell that she used is harmless, But the spell is just to make him love her and never to look for any other woman except her. I QUICKLY ASK HER HOW DID SHE GET TO KNOW THIS GREAT,POWER,DURABLE AND PERFECT WORK SPELL CASTER,she said that a friend of hers also introduce her to him. Then i also ask her how i can meet with this spell caster.SHE SAID EVERYTHING TO ME,THAT THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER IS SHAKES SPEAR ORACLE TEMPLE.My next question to her was how can i get this wonderful spell caster,She said she is going to give me the email of the spell caster for me to contact him for my problem,Really she gave to me this spell caster email and i contacted him and explained all to him,And after every thing that needed to be done by the spell caster, In the next two days, My lover that hated me so much came to house begging for forgiveness and i was so glad that i have finally gotten my heart desire..I was so grateful to this spell caster for what he has done for my life.. So i made a promise to him that i will always continue telling the world about his wonderful work towards me and also to other that came to you before and also the people that will also get to you from my story that i narrated online now..I will want to say to the entire world that you should not cry over noting again, That there is a great man that has been helping individuals to restore there Joy and smile in there faces !! The direct email to get this man is : shakesspear23@yahoo.com OR shakesspear23@gmail.com ,This is what i want to tell you all out there,That is thinking that all hope is lost ok.CONTACT SHAKES SPEAR TODAY:: shakesspear23@yahoo.com OR shakesspear23@gmail.com .Thanks

  9. I never knew cannabis oil was indeed wonderful and very effective in treating cancer’ if not for the government and their so called rules in regulating cannabis my Dad would have still been alive. thanks to the newly policy for legalizing cannabis else i would have still lost my son to kidney cancer, i was really touched and surprised when i watch lots of documentary on how cannabis oil had helped lot of people whom their family members never thought they could make it after undergoing several ”Chemo” from the dept of my heart i must say a word of appreciation to Dr Shakes Spear for the timely intervention in the life of my son suffering from Kidney Cancer. as i am writing this testimony on this Blog my Son is so strong and healthy in spite he hasn’t completed the total Dosage’ for your cannabis and medical consultation try and get in touched with him through his email: (shakesspear23@yahoo.com or shakesspear23@gmail.com ) so he can enlightened you more.
