My sister-in-law asked me about candle holders awhile back and so I looked through the patterns of the ones that I had and I picked this one. I liked the bees.

The tray is made of Oak and the bees are cut from Baltic Birch. I didn’t have any oak 1/8” thick and I figured they were going to be painted. I added some glitter paint to their wings. The other thing that I changed was on the patterns the two bees hanging were attached to a ribbon and hung around the candle itself. I attached them to a wire and drilled a hole in the base and sunk the wire. This way you wont have to change the ribbon everytime you change candles.

The pattern is by Sheila Landry.

Very cute piece! I am planning on cutting this design from Sheila very shortly as well.

The wire idea was a very good way of being able to hang the bees on a candle with no taper in the neck – cool!

Sheila might be getting another idea from you! ;-)

Good cutting!

I love this! I like what you did with the bees on the wire. The glitter is also a nice touch. I have not made one of these yet but I am going to give it a try.

Your idea of putting the bees on wire is great! You did a really nice job with the tray and I love your painting. I also love the idea of adding a little sparkle to the wings. They look wonderful! It’s so nice to see what others do with my designs and I was thrilled to see this here. Your work is wonderful!

Very inspiring work. I too am glad to see projects reproduced from our site here. Sheila has a true gift, and what a compliment to both of you. Great post.

Thanks for all the kind words. I enjoy scrolling and one of these days I will be able to do it more often. So many things to make and so little time to do it in.
