Seasonal Candle Decoration Ideas

Christmas lights and stockings add festive ambience to any room, while candles take this season’s theme even further. Whether it’s to add some festive flare in your own home or create an unexpected present for someone special, here are a few creative ideas you should keep in mind when styling candles this holiday season.

Add an eye-catching decorative element by wrapping the entire candle in fabric for an inviting feel and look. Finish it off by attaching holiday-themed stickers for an extra splash of color and personality.

Flameless Candles

Use flameless candles to add festive charm and ambience to tables and mantles without the risk of fire hazards. They offer an authentic flicker-effect glow, perfect for tablescape decorating ideas that are sure to wow guests. Tuck these flameless beauties among greenery for an eye-catching tablescape!

Decorated candles can add seasonal flare to any room in your home. Use decorative pillar candles, for instance, as seasonal focal points by tying ribbon around their jar candlesticks, tying bows around them, or covering plain red pillar candles with candy cane sticks or polka-dot ribbon.

Reusing flower pots as candleholders for your New Years display is another creative idea. Just fill the bottom of a pot with damp floral foam, stick coniferous branches, berries and oranges into it – leaving room for one candle in the center – then tie twine or burlap around its base for rustic charm or embellish a regular candle by surrounding it with wreath made of florist foam and scarlet carnations flowers!

Mini Plant Holders

Candle holders don’t just complement candles – they also enhance your decor! Create autumnal accents in any room by wrapping a simple lantern with fabric, adding silk leaves, pinecones or acorns, or tying cinnamon sticks around its base for an authentic rustic aesthetic.

Vases for Flowers

Decorate candles with flowers to bring light and festivity into your home during the holidays. Utilizing existing glass pieces such as votives, vases and flutes paired with candles or tea lights.

Glittering candles is an easy and enjoyable way to add some flair. Apply a thin coat of glue over the surface, sprinkle glitter over it and allow the glue to set before using your candle.

Personalized Candles

Candles with personalized messages or photos can be an elegant way to commemorate an occasion such as an event, holiday, birthday or just to show someone how much you care. Plus they make thoughtful presents for loved ones and friends at any event or celebration!

Another simple decorative technique involves dripping melted wax onto the sides of a pillar candle to form unique designs. Since the wax will harden before lighting your candle, there won’t be any fire hazards associated with this practice.

Combine decorative jars with natural elements such as pine cones, tangerines and dried flowers for an attractive winter candle decoration. You could also add sparkle with glitter-covered candles; just be sure that any glitter is safe to burn and that any decorations are non-removable so they remain lit safely.
