Tree Trunk Candles

Melissa of The Happier Homemaker loves all the tree bark candles she’s been seeing around.

Birch Bark Candle

Kim from Sand & Sisal had been on a hunt to find birch bark sheets for a PB-inspired candle. After scouring craft stores, she drove home disappointed and discouraged… that is until she spied a pile of downed birch trees right by her house! Kim peeled some bark off the trees and scurried home to make this lovely candle. In all honestly, I would take Kim’s candle over Pottery Barn’s in a heartbeat. Why settle for painted when you can have the real deal? Just look at all that natural texture!
