A Flicker In The Woods


  • Pillar candle
  • Eight to ten 6-inch twigs
  • 6 pieces of 6-inch twig garland
  • Gardening pruners
  • Awl
  • Glue gun


  1. Dig out the base of the candle and hot-glue a bundle of similar-size sticks and twigs to the base.

  2. Trim the sticks to an even length, and you’ve made nature’s own candlestick.
