WINNER:tmoya Etsy Store Lichenwoods Giveaway Set of Three Rustic Wooden Candle Holders with Tea Lights - $24.95 Shipping: Worldwide These candle holders are made from wood we've found in our "backyard" along the Big Sur coastline after a big storm has whipped through. We only choose wood that has a mottled growth, lichen or budding that will add to its character. Expect a crack or two as well sometimes, for we find that only adds to the naturalness & character of each candle holder. I came up with the idea of building rustic items for home decor after visiting my sister in Ohio who lives in a rather unusual two-story log cabin. I've built wooden mirrors, coat racks, a lot of garden baskets and trivets (both for plants AND the kitchen).
