I’m always on the hunt for fresh tabletop decor. With spring around the corner, I’m looking for something unique and elegant, and I’m ready to bring the outdoors in. This simple spring candleholder combines all sorts of fun elements like fresh greenery and upcycled glass. I played around with different design options to add a bit more personality to each candle. It’s so easy, you can make a few in no time to spruce up your home for any season!
- Fresh greenery (ask your local florist for some free scraps)
- Simple white taper candles
- Glass bottles (hit the recycling bin local thrift stores and antique malls)
Begin by carefully shaving the ends of your candlesticks to fit your glass bottles properly. Take your time, you don’t want to accidentally make them too skinny on the ends!
Place your candlesticks securely into the glass bottle. You can heat it slightly for a secure fit.
Snip a portion of your greenery. It can be as big or as small you prefer.
Cut a piece of twine to help secure your flowers to the glass bottle.
For your first bottle, simply tie your piece of greenery to the top of the glass bottle using the twine.
For the rest of the bottles, I played around with adding water to the jars and having the greenery float inside.
I tucked some greenery into the bottles so they would stand up alongside the candles.
And even played with the two looks combined – just experiment and have fun!
They are earthy, modern and will be sure to add a whimsical touch to your tabletops this spring!
Make sure The bottom of the candle doesn’t touch the water…Water can travel up the wick and it won’t light. Also watch that as the candle burns down the flame is not near the greenery ….especially eucalyptus which is highly flammable .
@Karen Thank you for sharing! I suppose not everyone is aware of these important tips 🙂 Good thinking.
