Nothing says cosy quite like a few candles flickering away in a room, especially in the colder months. I don’t think I could survive winter — actually make that winter, spring and autumn — without candles. I light them in every room from the kitchen to the entryway and of course in my outdoor space too. I love scented candles that come in a jar but there is an elegance to tall, long candles that you can’t beat. Tall candles of course need candle stands or candle sticks to hold them and so I’m sharing some stylish but easy DIY candle holders for long candles that you can make.
You can go out and buy candle holders but where’s the fun in that? Besides, once you see how easy these DIY tcandle holders are to make yourself, you’ll probably never buy another again. And just because they’re easy to make, doesn’t mean they are compromised on looks. They’re both practical and stylish with a minimal vibe.
