As soon as there’s a chill in the air I’m waiting to break out the pumpkins and fall scented candles. I’m the girl in the car playing Christmas carols from Thanksgiving morning until New Years Day…I can’t help it! It’s the feeling of the season that makes me smile…sitting on my couch, watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, DIY’ing a picture frame or Fall inspired centerpiece that I hope will be admired throughout the holiday season.
Your Autumn decor doesn’t need to be anything elaborate, in fact, I think it’s the subtle things that make a home feel festive, welcoming and inspired. Here are 5 Easy DIY Candle Centerpieces for Fall.
#1. Chalk Board Mason Jar Candle Centerpiece
Set this one out by Halloween and keep it burning through Christmas. Wouldn’t it be beautiful on a shabby chic platter surrounded by cranberries?
#2. Sweater Candle
So cozy and cute! I happen to have handfuls of small glass candle holders AND old sweaters…what a perfect use for both. This is an Anthropologie knock-off, by the way. Bless them for coming up with such adorable ideas that are so easily replicated – for a fraction of the cost!
#3. Rustic Candle Holders and Natural Wood
I see wooden candle sticks at thrift shops all the time. Some bright, festive paint and a little sandpaper is all you need to replicate this look.
#4. Belts and Burlap
This idea is so cheap and easy to do! It’s sure to spark conversation and brings a trendy feel to traditional holiday decor. Try using at least one belt in a bright color; red or orange would be a perfect holiday pop of color.
5. Cranberries and Candles…Elegant Holiday Centerpiece
Save this for a holiday dinner party or debut on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. A tall glass cylinder, fresh cranberries in water and a floating candle pull this look together. A wooden or metal base brings a subtle homey feel.
