I love homemade gifts. One of my favorite gifts received over the years was a candleholder my youngest son made for me. It was made out of a white birch log and I just loved the simplicity of it. This year I decided to try to make one myself with a little help from my husband. We have numerous white birches on our property so locating a tree to cut down was easy.

A few holes were drilled into the wood to hold the candles.homemade gifts, candleholders

I love the red candles against the white log.

You could also add a few dried flowers or greens if you wanted. Think I might make a few to give as Christmas gifts.
