Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)

Done with school – whoopee. I haven’t had a lot time for writing or cooking the last couple of days because of my exams. But today I had my last exam. Hurray. It is so wonderful to be done with all the exams. And they have all turned out quite well. I got a 12 today (highest score) in history. Very nice. Actually I also got a 12 in Physics and Chemistry. That’s a very nice way to leave the Danish municipal primary and lower secondary school (I wrote about our school system in this post).

But it is even more wonderful, that I now have time for writing and cooking again (and all of the other thing I like to do ;-) ). I fell over this picture of my homemade candle holders and thought it would be nice to share them with you.

I really love candles – they are so cozy. I made these wonderful candleholders some month ago when it was still cold and grey outside. But candles can definitely be a great thing all year round.

These candle holders are very easy to make and you can make them with things you probably already have on hand. Just pick up some dry sticks in the forest and you are almost ready :-) Cheap and lovely.

What you need
A small glass – or plain candle holder
Branches – dry
Linen cord for the bows

Hot glue (you’ll need quite a lot ;-) )

What you need

How to do

Cut out the branches in the size you want. Measure the candle holder and make the twigs the exactly same size. Use one twig to measure all the others as shown in the picture above.

Use both thick and thin branches and some with knots and small twigs. That’ll make the candle holders “funnier” and the light will be very beautiful.

Done with the cutting

Glue on the branches. Start with the big ones and then add the smaller afterwards to fill in the holes between the branches.

Done – simply add a bow.

Tadaa!
