We love the outdoors at our house. I have always loved the look of the tree branch candle holders, but oh my goodness the prices!!! We were just in Grand Lake, Colorado camping over Labor Day and I saw some in a store for $15 each. We recently had an aspen tree pass away at our house and cut it down. We saved some of the branches and we made our own aspen branch candle holders!

This year I’m using some natural fall decor in my home. I have pinecones on my mantel, and I wanted to do something with leaves. I have had this branch for a few years know trying to thing of the right project – then I realized – this is it!!! Find out what I’m doing now…
Making this fall candle is easy and inexpensive. I made this project years ago and get so excited to bring it back every fall. I also love the way when the season is done that it packs away nicely.
