This was a centerpiece at a wedding we went to recently and I thought it was a very cool idea. I told my darling husband that I would really like to have a candle-holder like this up at the lake and he was delighted because, it seems, it's pretty easy to make. Get a log, drill a hole and insert a candle. Of course, it has to have holly or poinsettias to compliment it but that part I can do. We have a couple of trees he would like to trim so that works out well but I think he could make it work with some wood that we used to buy at the grocery store for our (old) wood-burning fireplace. I got this idea from a California Ranch Wedding that we went to recently. It was a keeper idea.
