By Candlelight, All Is Better. During the cold, frosty winter we love lighting as many white candles as we can and creating an atmosphere of peace and calm as all is better by candlelight. For our Winter Mantel we have winterized our candles with snowflakes and icicles and encased them in ice.
We were able to create this Wintry look by using what we already owned. Using ivory pillar candles, class candle jars, snowflakes, icicles and fake snow, we created our Winter candles.
We started with clean and dry candle jars. We placed some fake snow in the bottom of the candle jar. Next went in our candle.
We had some flexible snowflakes we added in one at a time, poking them in with a chop stick. Last we put in three plastic icicles and pushed them around a bit until we liked the look.
We ended up making three of these candles. We placed then just so on the mantel and when the sunlight filled the room, it was as if the candles came alive with all the light reflection.
These smaller Winter Candles were very simple to put together. We took a glass tea light candle shade and inverted it into a pillar candle holder. It was already decorated with snowflake motifs, so not embellishing required.
This Winter surround yourself with the clean white peacful light of candle glow. More of our Winter Mantel can be found here. Be inspired, get creative!
Our God is a God who saves;
from the Sovereign Lord comes
escape from death.
