When you make your own homemade candles you will want to use them everywhere. Combining candles, fall flowers, colors, scents and thanksgiving craft ideas makes for great family fun. Because of it’s simplicity, this could be used as a kids craft for thanksgiving.
I bought a glass pedestal candle holder, a fall holiday wreath, pine cones and some green colored ribbon, which I made into bows. You can use store bought materials for the sake of convenience. But hopefully you are in a part of the country where you can find lots of beautiful natural materials outdoors. As a kid, we went out in the woods, and picked Bittersweet in the wild. It would have been beautiful wrapped around a candle base like this.
First I placed the candle holder upon a platter, so I could move it around with ease. On the platter, I centered the pedestal stand. Inside the glass candle holder I placed a 7″ soy pillar candle made from one of my holiday scented candle recipes, made from a blend of cinnamon and cranberry essential oils. Around the base I wrapped a fall wreath.
If you are using wild craft items, have floral wire and wire cutters to bind the stems, and hold them in the shape you desire. Embellish the branches with pine cones, and other items of your liking. I then place green bows around the centerpiece just to add a bit more festive look to it.
Don’t forget, you want to be careful examine your final arrangement so the decorations and fall flowers used cannot accidentally come into contact with the burning candle wax. Always keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets for the sake of safety.
Enjoy the holiday season and thanks for stopping by.
