Birch Bark Candle Pots

Next time you go for a woodland walk, look out for fallen birch trees. They will have the loveliest bark falling off, which is very pliable, easy to cut into and hugely decorative.

Birch Bark Candle Pots

A perfect 5 min craft project for the busy week leading up to Christmas but looks nothing like a 5 min project when finished and makes really great presents too.

You will need:

  • Old glass jar jars
  • Raffia or ribbon
  • A crafts knife


  • Clean up your bark and find a piece large enough to cover your jam jar.
  • Cut it to shape at the bottom. You can choose to do the same at the top or leave rustic, which ever you prefer.
  • Cut 2-3 random star shapes out of the bark with the craft knife.
  • Now secure the bark to the jam jar with raffia or ribbon.
  • Finally place a t-light inside and you will have the prettiest t-light candle pot around.
