Hey! Midsommarflicka aka. Elena’s here again!
Now that we’re deep in fall and soon in winter (at least here, where I am…) it’s the right time to get put all the candles that we buy every time when at our favorite Swedish interior designer… You know what I’m talking about and I know that you’re guilty of it! ;)
(Please pin each project from its original site! Thanks!)
I’m a sucker for all kinds of natural decoration, so this 5 Minute Autumn Centerpiece defintiely speaks to me! And if you want to decorate as well with pumpkins, but to want to jazz them up, check my DIY Pumpkin Decoration Roundup from last month here!
And then I stumbled upon this version of Tree Branch Candle Holder and am fascinated!
Woos is a great idea but you like clear lines better? No problem, I got you covered! Here’s a tutorial for 15 Minute Wood Candle Holders!
Coming back to my beloved natural decoration: Apple Tea Lights! Yes please! And because I couldn’t decide which color I like better, you get the tutorial for Red Apple Tea Lights and Green Apple Tea Lights. Which are the same, of course. But decisions aren’t my strong suit.
What works with apples of course also does work with pumpkins – create ‘Gourd’eous Candle Holders! ;)
Another fun material to craft with is concrete. And of course there’s a way to make Concrete Tealight Holders. What else would you’ve thought?
Now we’re leaving the world of candle holders and come to the world of making candles in unexpected containers. At first: Teacup Lights.
Next: Mason Jar Candles. (Are Mason Jars are still in?)
Another really cute idea are these Candles In A Bottle. They are perfect for the outside, because the tealights are wind-protected! Perfect for next summer ;)
And now something for the minimalist on you: Washi Tape Tea Lights. And because I couldn’t decide again which version I liked better I gove you both, the Colored Washi Tape Tea Lights and the Black & White Washi Tape Tea Lights!
So, who’s now off to our favorite Swedish interior designer, buying candles and tea lights? I knew it! :)
In case you’d like a totally different candle for the upcoming Advent time you may be interested in reading about the Danish tradition of Kalenderlys! Oh, and while you’re out, buying candles, remeber to buy some for your Advent Wreath! Interested in it’s history? I wrote something about it last year, you can read it here!
Talk to you soon!Written by Elena - Visit Website
