Just finished this juniper cancle holder. It fits either votives or tea light candles. I have added turquoise througout, this is one that I was not going to add turquoise but… it was just begging to have it.

I finished it with 2 coats of semi gloss polycrylic

Candy, this is beautiful piece. You have taken a relatively straight-forward project, a candle holder, and turned it into a unique piece of art by using this piece of juniper. The turquoise addition sets the piece off and adds a nice visual element to the piece.

Thanks for sharing this.

Hi candy, I already put you as my buddy, which means that at the site, I receive an e-mail whenever you add another project and means in my heart that I become addicted to your art. This Juniper Log Candle Holder did not disappoint my addiction, more of that, it was worth to wait for your marvelous piece of art.

True Art! The visual effect of this piece is fantastic from every angle. It’s romantic even without the candles lit. lol.
