Ribbon Candle Vignette



I can't resist lighting candles throughout my home, this time of year. As the light fades in the early evening, there is a pull to create a cozy glow that chases away the darkness. This simple ribbon candle vignette was inspired by one I created for St. Patrick's Day here, making a few changes for the season.

Using two tall pillar candles of staggered height, I added a length of harvest themed ribbon to the smaller one by securing it with gold, pearl topped pins. The pins easily push into the candle.

Next I repeated the process with burlap ribbon and white, pearl topped pins. The pins add a special finishing touch and hold everything secure.

For my third candle in the vignette, I decided to use a harvest scented jar candle. Part of the charm of lighting candles, is the wonderful scent that fills your home and you need a good quality jar candle for this. I can replace it easily throughout the fall season, as it burns down. All three candles sit on a clear glass plate.

For very little effort, I have created a unique and beautiful candle grouping that will add warmth and fall color to my kitchen counter.

Happy Tuesday!
