I'm sure you've all seen these in the shops and on swanky interiors websites. They were everywhere at Christmas, and still featured heavily in magazines and homeware articles.
They add a rustic, Nordic atmosphere to a room, and I just love them. The trouble is, I didn't want to pay anything up to £20 for one.
The solution was simple: make my own! It's easy, and best of all, it's totally free.
You can add cut-out designs of hearts or initials - perfect for a thrifty handmade Valentine's gift. Or make several, with a cut out letter on each to spell out a name or word.
I apologise in advance for the photos. I keep forgetting to buy batteries for my camera, so these were taken on my phone. Plus it's impossible to take pictures of candles in the daytime!
First up you'll need to source your bark. Personally I think this is the most fun part. A great excuse to wrap up and go for a family walk in the woods.
