How to make candle holders out of birch branches

I love almost all nature-inspired decor, but these birch branch candle holders are really something special. They'd be especially nice at Christmas but could be a beautiful addition to your decor no matter what the time of year.
You'd spend a pretty penny on these at the store, but if you're making them yourself, they cost next to nothing. That's a good thing because you're probably going to want to make more than a few. Check out the video and the instructions to see how it's done.
