Okay, this may be a little more than you would expect for simply holding a few matches near the fireplace. I did get a request for a Match Holder for those 12" long wooden matches they sell at the fireplace store. We used to use them for lighting the gas water heater. So wanting to do something a little unusual and out of the ordinary and in keeping with my theme of large ironwork, this is the creation. And it came out really cool. This one is about 30" tall and the base scroll is a little over two feet long. With the colored match heads sticking out, it should be a real accent to any fireplace.
Replace the matches with dried flowers or long thin tapers and you've got a whole new look for the piece. Put in on the buffet or dining room table as a centerpiece with fresh flowers. I'm very excited about this idea and intend to make a very large version shortly, just because I think it will be fun. I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I have enjoyed the creation.
