Candle Holders

I made a few of these small Tea Light candle holders today, the three pictured are made from seasoned  (disease free) Elm, the wood has a gorgeous grain and resists cracking and as they will be holding a lit candle, i figured Elm would be a good choice as it doesn't really burn, should the worst happen and the candle sets the wood alight, it also stinks to high heaven when it does catch, thereby adding a bit of a safety feature, the holders have a green felt base to stop the wood scratching surfaces and to finish them off the holders themselves have a small piece of felt in the bottom as a finishing touch.

  1. Wow! They look great! I had no idea Elm smelled bad when burning; I'll have to keep that in mind next time I'm out.
