Halloween is over and I feel it’s now safe to start sharing Christmas decor and ideas. I’m kicking off the season with 10 ways to display Christmas candles in your home! (This post contains affiliate links.)
Above, a beautiful birch candle holder with a heart cut-out makes a perfect vignette for Christmas. Add faux berries and snow, along with a wooden evergreen tree for a pretty holiday vignette
Use a slice of wood from the yard to elevate a common white pillar candle. I do this when I have same-height candles and want to make some appear taller than the others in a grouping. Add greenery or cinnamon sticks to the vignette for cozy appeal.
Decorate pillar candles with ribbon, twine, and ornaments. It’s a great way to use scraps of ribbon leftover from wrapping presents.
Scoop out the end of an orange just large enough to tuck a tea light inside (use battery operated if you want to avoid real flames). Add cloves to make pretty patterns. This is such a classic look for creative Christmas candles.
Cut small twigs to wrap around a candle. I created rustic candleholders using this approach with glass candles. You can easily do it with pillar candles too.
How easy is this floating tea light idea for the holidays? Pretty easy! Tuck a piece of faux foliage (preferable one with colorful red berries) into a small bubble bowl. Fill with water leaving about an inch at the top of the bowl. Add a tealight and you’re good to go! I created this same floating tea light centerpiece with real flowers a few years ago.
Create pretty Christmas candles with a snowy glass lantern and a pine cone candle. Add faux snow – you can use flour or sugar to create this effect!
Not in a creative mood? Find a small wooden box – painted or plain – and tuck pillar candles of varying heights inside. Fill the empty spaces with greenery or small ornaments, or both!
I love this simple idea for displaying candles at Christmas. A tin can gets wrapped in birch bark and tied in place with twine. Three candles are placed inside and allowed to fall akimbo.
This idea might very well be my favorite. Bake a beautiful chocolate cherry Bundt cake and place a lit candle inside when serving. So pretty!
