Candle Decoration

Candle project with base by Tom Buhl. Rather than making as an ornament, I created a oval for a base. A short dowel is glued into the base, but candle/holly is non-glued for easier storage. Candle/holly is Mahogany, base is Walnut. Sprayed with a couple of coats of clear lacquer. Mary, thanks for the great little seasonal project.
