Outdoor Candle Holder Made from a Birch Trunk

Outdoor Candle Holder Made from a Birch Trunk

Last week I attended the Nashville Lawn and Garden Show.  I’ve been very busy planting seeds and getting the garden ready and I haven’t had a lot of time to post lately so I thought I would share a few short posts with your from the show that had some clever design ideas that you may want to consider for your garden. Today’s design idea would be a very simple project: build a log candle holder for the patio!  

The designer of this easy garden project took half of a birch log put holes in it then inserted tea light candles into the holes.  Project complete!  Does it get much simpler?  To make the holes consider buying a hole saw like what I used on my window plant shelf project.  The log candle holder makes a great rustic accent to any outdoor table.
