DIY Tree Candle Holder

This candle holder is made from kill beetle pine that we collected on one of our many hikes in the Rocky Mountains. It is a beautiful wood in which the designs are created by a beetle that gets under the bark and burrows around. I love to really look at all of the intricate designs but it is also a little sad to me because the busy little beetles end up killing the tree that they are working so hard on. At least we can collect the wood, in areas that it is allowed, and make something beautiful out of it.
