Easy Holiday Candle Decor

This is a super easy holiday candle DIY. 

I got out my old bowl that I just love. I put this red candle in the middle of it. But it was too short. So I gave it some height with a small bowl. 

Then I simply took strands of gold beads and filled up the bowl around the candle. 

It doesn't get much easier than that!

You could also fill it with ornaments, or greenery, or whatever your heart desires.

A quick centerpiece if someone unexpected is coming over and you don't have more time to jazz things up!


  1. What a great idea! I love it when people decorate with things they already have--so much more imaginative and you don't have to worry about where you'll store it after the holidays are over. :-) Happy Saturday!

  2. Hi Brenda! You are so creative! I love the way you decorate! wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!! hugs! Carol

  3. My favorite kind of decorating - easy peasy!!

  4. What a great idea to decorate in a pinch. I enjoy seeing what you create with what you have on hand. I love it!

  5. It looks beautiful! You have all sorts of thinking time available while keeping Abi calm. By the way, how is she doing today?

  6. Quick and easy, so charming. Have a nice weekend. Storms over here in north Texas with weird warm temps. How is Abi doing?

  7. Lovely Brenda! I am a big fan of quick and easy!

  8. Love it! It's just fun to create with what you have. I have been doing that this year. I have bought a few small things, but nothing big or expensive. Because it ends up being more "stuff" to store later. Ha! Sheila

  9. Very cute! Candles are a mainstay in my home---just for a little evening glow. I love that this idea takes it to a whole new level.


  10. I always see pretty candles and ask myself why I don't use them more.

  11. Very pretty....also I have some very old bowls that are perfect for this!

  12. I started blogging to catalog the happenings in my family, and over time it evolvd into sharing a bit about what we liked to do and eat, and how we celebrated birthdays, holidays...etc. I mostly write for me, but I love it when someone comments. I started another blog maybe a year ago where I can be much more frank about MY life, not just that of my family. I can feel free to state things plainly as I see them - no sugar coating. It hink it's a great outlet, personally. The two blogs are The cannary Family, and It's Just Me, Gina.


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time. I appreciate each and every one of you!
