What You’ll Need
When it comes to creating the perfect decorations, there are a few things you’ll need to get started. For candle decorations, make sure you have the following items:
-Garland: Choose a festive holiday garland or pre-lit garland to give your space that extra bit of sparkle.
-Candles: Select a variety of sizes and styles to create a beautiful display.
-Votives and Tealights: These small candles create a warm, inviting atmosphere in any room.
-Candle Holders: You can choose from glass, ceramic, and metal holders to match your holiday theme.
-Matches or a Lighter: To light your candles, you’ll need these tools on hand.
Once you have gathered all of these materials, you are ready to begin decorating!
Preparing the Area
Before you start decorating your home for the holidays, you need to make sure the area is prepped and ready for the decorations. Clear away any furniture or knick-knacks that may get in the way of hanging garlands or placing candles. Put away any fragile items and make sure any areas that will be getting extra decorations are clean and ready to be decorated.
When you’re finished preparing the area, it’s time to get started on your holiday decorations! For a classic Christmas look, you’ll want to hang some garland around your doorway or mantle. If you want to add a bit more light to the area, consider buying some Kringle Candle Christmas scented votives or jar candles. These festive scents will fill your home with holiday cheer while adding some extra illumination.
Placing the Candles
Now that you have the candles set up and ready to go, it’s time to place them. You can place them in many different ways to create a unique, festive look. One of the most popular ways to display candles is in a garland. Garlands are easy to put together and you can customize them however you like! Start by looping string or ribbon around your candles, leaving enough room between each one for other decorative elements such as cranberries, evergreen sprigs, cinnamon sticks, holly leaves, and more. If you don’t have the space for a garland, you can still show off your candles in a beautiful way. Place your candles on shelves or mantle pieces, or get creative and add them to existing holiday decorations like wreaths. Candles look especially beautiful when placed on top of plates or mirrors. You can also group candles together to create a stunning centerpiece for your holiday table.
