A Festive Glow ....

A glowing candle looks great at any time of the year but at Christmas they really come into their own.You don't have to buy expensive ones either to create a fabulous display. By placing them  in some old jam jars, vases, etc and blending with natural materials like pine cones and greenery a truly stunning effect can be created. Here are some of my favourite ideas found Pinterest..


A simple but very effective idea with natural materials ...



Love the rustic element here using greenery and ribbon ....



Epsom salts are perfect to create  a wintery snowy effect ...



Outdoor lanterns look great on the front doorstep and add a lovely festive welcome glow ...

Hope everyone is having a good week!

Take Care:)

  11. Candles do give you a homey, warm and welcome feel.
    If they are scented, even better.
