Easter Candle Arrangement

Do you decorate with candles for Easter?

Today we would like to share with you our Easter candle arrangement. You may recall these lace wrapped candles from Our Irish Mantel
We still wanted to use them in our Easter decor, so we just changed them up a bit with some bright colorful touches.
Oh, and you probably remember seeing the milk glass vase used as a candle stick also, only with a green candle in it. 

To change up the look of our lace wrapped candles, and make them look pretty for Easter, we wrapped them with multicolored thread and then layered on a homemade flower made from a paint chip card, two paper flowers and a button in the center and hot glued the flower onto the candle.

The picture frame was a recent thrift store find, and we did not intend, initially, to use it as part of our decor, but we like the way it worked with the candles.The pretty Easter graphic is from The Graphics Fairy.

We like the vintage, shabby chic feel to the candles from the lace, and the little bit of modern from the colorful flowers.

Easter is a colorful time and these candles really help bring that energy into the house.

 Be inspired, get creative!

Honor the Lord with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase; 
So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine. 
Proverbs 3:9-10
