A Little Christmas Candle Bling

I’ve been busy adding the finishing touches to my Christmas decor.  Candles always seem to add warmth to any room.   The candles below act as a center piece on my dining room table.   I added a touch of greens to each candle with a silver glittered snowflake. 


I did the same to the candles on the dining room buffet as I did on the dining room table. 



The wall sconce in the hallway I embellished the white candles with scrapbook paper, trim, greens and  gold glittered snowflakes. 


A close-up of the candle. 


These votive candles add a nice glow to my staircase, as long as my grandsons don’t rearrange them.


I just love this picture with the angel in the background. 


I love candles and to me candles always add a traditional warmth that is hard to obtain in other ways.

  1. Very nice! I like decorating a plain candle to my taste instead of paying the high prices for the already decorated ones in the stores. Have a blessed night!

  2. The candlelight just adds a wonderful, cozy ambiance to your home! Lovely photos!

  3. You did a beautiful job with the candles. And they do add warmth to a home. I couldn't have said it better.

  4. Beautiful candle embellishment.

  5. Love the candle decor, they add so much warmth and festive cheer. May I invite you to join in the Christmas decor and delights carnival here..

  10. Everything looks beautiful.I love the stairway. very pretty. I am afraid of lit candles so avoid them but learned how to make old ones that others melted down and made them into battery tea lights and then guilded them and blinged them.Happy holidays
