Cozy Fall Decorating with Candles

Cozy Fall Decorating with Candles

Autumn rolls into town with her riotous color as if to create a blaze of excitement across the shortening days. In order to create warmth as the sun’s appearance starts to wane, I add cozy fall decorating with candles throughout the home. At this time of year, I prefer the richer scents of pumpkin, sage, and cinnamon. I also prefer to add my own creative twist to store-bought candles.

Creative Candles for Fall Decorating via candle at left is simply a mason jar with a votive candle inside. I wrapped fallen leaves around the jar and tied them in place with a twine bow, and then added a few wraps of lace around the mouth of the jar. I covered the label of the Yankee Candle at right with a swatch of eyelet lace and again tied it in place with twine. Super easy, and inexpensive to boot!

I then layered a French paper label on top of that, and used another twine bow to keep it all in place. No glue is necessary, which makes it easy to swap out other decorative elements or paper, depending on the season.
