I don't know about you, but I've seen a lot of rustic accessories and tableware popping up all over design blogs lately. The wood cake stand is one of my favorites, and I'm hoping to be able to make one soon so I can share the DIY with you!
I love the idea of bringing the outdoors in through rustic or organic design elements. Which is why I was thrilled when my husband made me this wooden pencil holder. The piece of wood is one that his friend found by a river bank. My husband just added a few holes to it, sanded down the edges, and made it into a functional decorative piece for my art room.

Small slice of wood either from a large branch or tree base (mine is a piece of poplar about 6" in diameter)

Step 1. Using a hand saw, carefully cut your wood piece to the desired height.
Step 2. Drill holes into the top of your wood piece. You can drill in a pattern or randomly.
