Candle Holder w/Detachable Collar

Hopefully I'm done doing crafts for the year, but I wanted to share this last candle holder I had to do for a friend.

I took this large jar...


and after some playing around came up with this...





The "collar" is made from a palm leaf and it's detachable...

























Of course, this is my preference




This is it lit...












When it was time to wrap it I didn't want to use paper because I was afraid of messing up the collar part, so I decided to use all palms and used some fabric to give it color and a Christmas-y affect.










I truly hope everyone had a MERRY CHRISTMAS, and while you LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW, please be safe for the coming NEW YEAR!
