Awesome Candle Decorating Ideas

Decorate your home with beautiful candles to suit any holiday and every season.  When you bring candles into your home decoration plans, you are sure to love the bright, warm, beautiful glow they add to your home.  Check out these tips for decorating your candles at any time of the year.

Painted pillars

Select two or three pillar candles in different sizes, and be sure to choose a light color for your candle base.  White, ivory, cream, or even pale pastel colored candles are good choices for this project.  Pick up some candle painting medium from any craft store, and mix it in equal parts with simple acrylic paint to help it stick and to keep it from being flammable as well.  Then, paint whatever you would like on the side of your candles!  Choose something that can be carried over onto all of your pillar candles, such as a nature scene.  When you have finished, arrange the candles on a decorative tray with some matching faux fruit or flowers for a beautiful look.

Autumn tea lights

For a truly unique fall decorating idea, put together these autumn tea lights.  Begin with miniature pumpkins, such as the kind you can find in grocery stores.  You will need real ones for this project, rather than craft pumpkins.  Slice off the tops of the pumpkins and scoop out the insides, the same way that you would for a full-size jack-o-lantern, then punch holes directly across from each other on both sides of the pumpkins.  Thread a decorative fabric ribbon through the pumpkin and tie it in a knot at the top for easy hanging.  Then simply place a tea light inside the pumpkin, light it, and enjoy the fall magic!

Push pins

Push pins are available in a wide variety of colors, and they can be an easy and ultra-affordable way to dress up a candle for your home.  Choose a plain colored pillar candle, then select a complementing color of push pins.  All you have to do is push the pins into the soft wax of the candle and you will have a beautiful, studded look to match any room.  This is also a great way for kids to decorate their own candles.
