It just so happened on Friday that there was a sudden weather change (which is sadly over now), giving me the chance for a good run in the park and apparently an opportunity to go twig-hunting. As you certainly have seen above I decided to upgrade my interior with these cute little twig candle holders I have seen on CraftySpice, crafting them just a bit differently.
- some twigs
- glass tea light holders
- golden filament
- hot glue gun (Update: take regular glue since the tea light holders will get warm)
Now take a piece of golden filament, fold it in half and start connecting the twigs as shown by winding both ends around a stick and twisting the ends one time before taking a new one. Take into consideration that on one end the twigs need to be aligned.
When reached the end twist the ends a few times and cut the filament. Repeat this process on the lower part of the twigs. Now you have that nice little line of twigs, reminding just a bit of a miniature fence.
I must say, I hadn’t thought them to come out this cool. Especially the light they radiate, creating this delicate pattern on the surface. I hope you are inspired and go a little twig-hunting in the woods as well, especially if it happens to have that nice side effect in the end, aside from being outdoors.
