Ten Easy Ideas for Christmas Candles

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT 10 Easy Ideas for Christmas CandlesYaay! December is here at last and it’s time to get busy decking those halls! And one of my favorite ways to create that warm Christmas-y feeling is to add candles. The glow of candlelight just says Christmas time is here! So I am sharing my top ten favorite ways to create and style candles for the holidays. There’s a little bit of everything from simple and rustic to elegant and refined…so check them all out and enjoy! I hope you’ll find something that inspires you!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Mason Jar Christmas CandlesMy Mason Jar Christmas Candles were perhaps the easiest and least expensive to make. I just added greenery, cranberries and candles of various kinds to old jars that I had on hand…easy peasy!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Wisteria Inspired Sheet Music CandlesMy Wisteria Inspired Sheet Music Candles add a little bit of elegance and a reminder of the reason for the season. Just wrap a vase from Dollar Tree with the free graphics that you will find on my post, add some twine and a pillar candle. That’s it!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Christmas CenterpieceMy breakfast room Christmas Centerpiece is one of my favorite Christmas creations…with candles in little flower pots dressed with holly, moss, berries and twine!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Christmas Dough BowlIt wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t share my Christmas Dough Bowl. It was my grandmother’s so it always gets a special place among my decorations. In previous years, I have dressed it up with colorful ornaments…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy 5 Minute Pomegranate Candle HoldersThis year I shared my Pomegranate Candle Holders…such a fun way to use natural elements and pomegranates have their own little candle holder built right into the top!

If I had known how easy this one was, I would have done it long ago! I love the Scandinavian look of my Vintage Tartlet Tealights!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Faux Tin House LanternsAnd finally, we can’t forget the glow that even battery-powered candles can add to my Faux Tin House Lanterns. Of course, that’s the only kind you would use with these. Be sure to check out how easy and inexpensive they are to make…$5.00 compared to $50 for the real tin lanterns!
