About 10 years ago we moved from Upstate NY to Southern California. Living in Southern California has its perks like being able to spend Thanksgiving playing on the beach… but I miss the sights of streets and trees covered with a fresh dusting of white powder, holiday lights twinkling through a flurry of snow and the feeling of sitting next to a crackling fire and a beautiful Christmas tree!She shows you how to make this beautiful centerpiece with a DIY marble tray!

When Thymes sent me their Frasier Fir series to try out, I expected a pretty holiday scent but to my surprise, the scent of the Frasier Fir trees was so well packed into the candle! When I opened the package, the entire room filled with amazing fragrance of a fresh cut pine trees and hints of cedarwood and sandalwood. Lighting the candle was like magic! It felt like the holidays were here! The Northwood candle even has a wooden wick and crackles when you light it up!Can you believe this is a DIY Marble tray made from wood! It is the perfect gift!

If you have been a reader for a while, you know I love all things made of wood, these candles are so beautifully packaged – the lids are made of  natural cherry and walnut, the Northwood candle and diffuser are wrapped in natural cherry veneer, the gift sets are placed in a beautiful wooden box. These make such perfect gifts! That is not even the best part! Thymes has created the Buy one, Plant one campaign – they plant a tree for every product you buy from them. Every product even comes with little certificate with the coordinates of the tree you helped plant! Now that makes the best gift ever! There is a special offer from Thymes exclusively for you at the end of this post, so keep reading! They plant a tree for every product you buy! I love this company!

Let me wrap up all my feelings about Frasier Fir and the idea of creating homemade gifts and memories in a video!

DIY Faux Marble Tray –

Lets get back to the DIY hexagonal Marble tray. I have seen a bunch of DIY Marble trays that use a marble tile but in that case you are restricted to the shape of the marble tile. I wanted a hexagon so I came up with this technique to make this faux marble tray. Since it is not real marble, it is very lightweight too. You can package it up with a few of the amazing Frasier Fir candles and make an amazing gift!
