"Gettin' TWIGGY With It"

So I'm on this candle holder kick lately (see my upcycled spring candle holder).  I really like coming up with unique ways to display candles and tea lights. Since I'm a lover of "au natural" elements, I decided to dress up a plain, glass votive with a ring of twigs.

I used jute twine to knot various length twigs together to make a simple, rustic, organic statement with this second-hand votive holder. The twig "fence" merely slides over top of the votive's shape and naturally angles to support itself.  I like the "casual" angle of the twigs rather than forcing them to stand vertically.

A consistent knotting was eventually developed to create the finished look.

I'm planning on creating more along these lines but perhaps a bit more intricate in layout and design.
