Turn an ordinary jar into an awesome candle holder
I love to decorate my house with rustic home decors. One of the rustic materials available is 'twig' and the possibilities of craft works using twigs are endless. For now, I made this rustic candle holder by gluing twigs around a jar, so simple isn't it? Anyways, check out the tutorial to find out how I made the candle holder :)
