Gather some sticks, mine are birchwood.
Make all of the sticks relatively the same height as your candle. Some variation is good to have!
Use hot-glue to glue the sticks to the candle. Place the sticks strategically so they kind of "piece" together since they all are bent different ways.
In between the sticks, place some smaller sticks to fill in some of the gaps. Leave some or all of the gaps open so when you light the candle some light can shine through!
I love having this candle on my apartment balcony! But who am I kidding, I love candles Everywhere!
