DIY Tea Light Holder


Resurrecting from my bedroom, I'm gonna show you how I did this
DIY Tea Light Holder

made with

A little slice of a birch branch 
Metal wire
Natural twine

Curved long-nose pliers
Huge mattress Needle (or a thin nail and a hammer)

Get some slices from a birch branch.
You can get them with a buzz or a ribbon saw.
If you're not into such things and you want to save a little money, ask to your husband/boyfriend/neighbor

With your needle, or with a nail and a hammer, pierce de slice all around and get 12-15 holes.

Cut the wire into pieces... One for each hole and long about 5 -5.5 inches (12-13 cm)

Work the wire with the pliers and get a curl at the top of each wire.

Paste the wires with some SuperGlue in the holes.
Give the wires a bulging shape.

When you're done, take the twine and go in and out from the wires, alternating like in the picture below:

Add some extra metal-wire-curls.
This is what you'll get!

Hope you like it.
Have a nice week! :)
