    DIY CRAFTS Branch Candelabra

  • Emily Ooper

    Branch Candelabra This particular candelabra is on sale at West Elm for $69.99, originally wearing a price tag of $99.00.  I don't know about you, but I think I'd rather spend that kind of money on something else.  Especially when I can walk outside to my yard, grab a branch and make something very similar myself.   What you need: 1. A limb with many branches (the thicker, the better).  You can get this from your yard or any craft store or website that sells manzanita branches.  Save-on-crafts.com has them for $9.99! 2.  A can of spray paint (nickel finish if you want the West Elm look) 3.  Tapered candles (optional) 4.  A drill or super glue (depending on how brave you are) to keep the candles in place on the branches. The trickiest part of this one is making sure the candles stay upright.  You don't want to start any house fires in the process.  And again, this piece is so beautiful on its own, you wouldn't even have to put the candles on it.  You could just use it as a focal piece and place candle holders around it.  Either way, it's sure to turn heads! Uses:  This would look great on a mantel, in a table centerpiece or as a decorative element on a shelf or table...especially for fall!  Bring on the branches!

Decorating with branches: orchids or flowers of our choice add some bling! Easy, can have done ahead of time

I love that this arrangement is more "wintry" than strictly "Christmas." You could add a few small branches of holly berries for color during the holidays, then remove them to enjoy the greenery longer.

Did these myself... I absolutely LOVE them!!! Add rustic beauty to your mantle with twig candle holders. This DIY project is simple and natural, using just a flat candle holder (check thrift stores!), garden pruners, craft adhesive and dry tree or shrub branches of your choosing. The same concept could be used on vases or other decorative items. you could make sparkly ones too.

•❈• snowflake branch (if you need some snowflake patterns, I have some really great ones on my Christmas crafts board.)

branch coat hooks. No directions; was a 'for sale' item ... but could use pallets for the frame. Make sure branch sections are well dried. Pre-drill branch and frame. Use wood glue and screws (or pegs) to connect.
