It still amazes me how something so simple and inexpensive could yield such an amazing result and again, the possibilities are endless.

  • Change the flower
  • Change the color of the water
  • Use multiple smaller flowers for more color
  • Use a Votive in the middle and surround with flowers.
  • Add Beads
  • Change the container. I am sure you can find quite an assortment of different glass containers that could be used. I wouldn’t be surprised if you could find something great at the dollar store.
  • Add Fruit

Nature Inspired Evergreen Candle Holder

Supplies Needed:

Glass or Jar

Evergreen Pieces

Spray Adhesive

Candles- Mix or Match 3 Dozen PartyLite Tealights $25  or 3 Dozen Votives for $35

Step 1.

Wash the candle holder with dish soap and dry well. Cut the evergreen into different sized pieces based on to the height of the candle holder, it is best to cut a few at a time.

Step 2.

Dab the glue on the pieces making sure to hit the areas that will be flush to the glass. Place on the glass.

Step 3.

Repeat until all of the glass has been covered. As always, if using a candle holder do not leave these unattended! Isn’t the end result just magnificent?

I think these would make for a great arrangement when paired with the Nature Inspired Candle Holders that I posted about yesterday.
