Candelishous Me

Hello lovely readers,

I have this immense love for candles and a deeper love for artistically designed candle stands. Gone are the days when candles were lit during a power outage. Today they are perfect companions of lamps and other diffused mood lighting that create  a romantic, serene and a sublime setting, just about anywhere. Aromatic, non-aromatic, floating, non-floating, pillar, jar or tea- lights, I find all of them equally enthralling and uplifting.  Here are pics of some pretties that really had me at hello.

Love these Moroccan jar candle holders. Rich, ethnic, functional and artistic are the adjectives that come to my mind for them and of course not to forget therapeutic because of the soothing envelope of the soft light they create.

Here’s another ethnic dee light, I mean delightful tea light 🙂 The splash of cool colors  spell charm and a regal elegance.

And just in case if you have a finger on the pulse of innovative home decor ideas, I have something for you as well.

If you’re one of those who go wherever creativity takes you, I bet you’d love the creativity that oozes from this piece of work

Another one…mmm..I know a little creepy for some of us but creative nonetheless. Will gel well with Halloween decor along with the ubiquitous  jack-o-lanterns.

And now for those who come from the do -it -yourself brigade, here are some tips to create simple yet eye-catching tea light holders using plain-vanilla household stuff.

1)Laced Tea lights

a)Lay your hands on a simple juice glass. Something on these lines

b) Get some lace strips like these –ImageImage

c) Paste it around the glass like this…superglue will be happy to obligeImage

There you go…this is how the plain- vanilla glasses got a lacy and sensual makeover. Perfect for a valentine dinner date

2) Wine goblet candle holders. Wine goblets can definitely carry their liquor 😉 but they also  can carry candles with the same elan.

Things you’ll need-

a) Wine goblets (at least 2). Tulips or martini glasses would also suffice. Image

b) Fill it with your favorite..uh… sorry fill it 3/4th  with plain water. Throw in some fresh rose petals and a floating candle.

You could also create more colorful layers using colored stones at the base of the glass. Like this one-

Watching these simple- to -make luminaries glow, will  fill you with the joy of creating your own masterpiece. May these bring you all the light and more…
