I cannot get enough candles. They are the perfect mood maker by providing soft lighting and enjoyable scents. I generally go for the tealight candle as they are quite cheap to buy and there are so many ways you can decorate with them.
Collect used jars then buy wire to create a extremely cheap candle decoration. Plus they are hangable! To achieve this design with the wire would be quite tedious, but by using a simpler design you could still have a beautiful outcome. I like the way they have used a dark sand to keep the candle in place. I would probably use the white sand that I can get from my local beach.
How cute are these! I have many friends who are keen op shoppers and there have been many times they have found beautiful vintage teacups at a reasonable price. Also I have heard about candle making kits where you melt down the wax on the stove and pour it into your desired mould, or your preferred teacup, with your wick in the centre. I think these would make fantastic presents!
Similar idea to the jars but this time a little more fancy! How many times have you broken one or a few wine glasses from a set of 6? You usually go buy another set so you have 6 matching glasses. What to do with the others? Candle holders!
Using simple white pillar candles, you can generally let them sit by themselves but sometimes it’s nice to dress them up a bit. I love trees, branches, twigs, etc! These candle holders are too good to be true! Its just a matter of finding where they are sold.
These paper bags are very stylish. I feel a little scared they would catch on fire but if the candle was placed properly in the bag with no risk of being moved around, I would love to use these. These bags in particular are beautiful. The lace design is shown to its full glory thanks to the candle light.
I love the idea of putting candles on steps, to guide your path. Most of the times I have done it, the stairs have been outside and unfortunately it was a windy night so the flames didn’t last long. But, if I had a staircase in my house, I would definitely do this for my next party.
What a great idea! One very large glass vase with a small glass cup on the inside. Then you can put whatever you want between them, with no risk of it catching on fire. In this example they have used dodder vine which provides a stunning effect. You could use many different types of material to match with your decorating scheme. I would consider using dried leaves in different shades of brown.
