What a great idea from Good Housekeeping magazine! Fill a glass bowl or vase halfway with colorful conversation heart candies. Nestle pillar candles into the candies, twisting until they stand securely. Light and enjoy.

Thanksgiving is four short weeks away and as you make your grocery shopping list, prepare the guest rooms for all your out-of-town visitors and carefully place autumnal colored tapers in your candle holders, consider a new Thanksgiving tradition this year…a small dinnerlight at each place setting.

Decorating with Candles

We at Isle of Candles love to see pictures of candle decor. The more creative, the better. And thanks to www.RealSimple.com, we’ve got more than two dozen DIY candlescaping ideas with photos. They are easy, inexpensive and some even use items you already have around the house.

Repurpose champagne flutes, terra cotta pots and jelly jars to cast ambiant light over your next patio party or family dinner. If you’re burning these candles inside, consider switching from toxic, sooty paraffin wax candles to soy candles.

Send us pics from your candlescaping ideas–whether you replicate what is shown here or come up with your own.

Candles light up the night both indoors and out. Get your grandma’s mason jars or rinse out an assortment of jelly, pickle and mayonaise jars and create your own candle chandelier.

Sunset magazine’s Web site recently had a great photo of this very idea. Check it out here. If you tackle this DIY project for your backyard, dining room or patio, send us a photo! And for a nice selection of toxic-free votive candles in dozens of fragrances, remember to shop the Isle.
