This is a super easy holiday candle DIY. I centered it on one of the little tiny quilts I sewed many years ago.
I got out my old bowl that I just love. I put this red candle in the middle of it. But it was too short. So I gave it some height with a small bowl. 

Then I simply took strands of gold beads and filled up the bowl around the candle.

It doesn’t get much easier than that!

You could also fill it with ornaments, or greenery, or whatever your heart desires.

A quick centerpiece if someone unexpected is coming over and you don’t have more time to jazz things up!

  1. I started blogging to catalog the happenings in my family, and over time it evolvd into sharing a bit about what we liked to do and eat, and how we celebrated birthdays, holidays…etc. I mostly write for me, but I love it when someone comments. I started another blog maybe a year ago where I can be much more frank about MY life, not just that of my family. I can feel free to state things plainly as I see them – no sugar coating. It hink it's a great outlet, personally. The two blogs are The cannary Family, and It's Just Me, Gina.

  2. Love it! It's just fun to create with what you have. I have been doing that this year. I have bought a few small things, but nothing big or expensive. Because it ends up being more "stuff" to store later. Ha! Sheila

  3. What a great idea! I love it when people decorate with things they already have–so much more imaginative and you don't have to worry about where you'll store it after the holidays are over. 🙂 Happy Saturday!
