Need Ideas

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

Does anyone have any ideas for these 3 holders I have, I though about putting candles in them for Thanksgiving and then for Christmas. What are some of your ideas to put in them. I am not very good at coming up with ideas. I did have coffee beans in one of them and then a candle but I am ready for something different. Thank-for your help.

How about some small Christmas ornaments. I was Wal-Mart (yeah, the evil place) today and they have ornaments in a jillion colors. Harvest colors, pastels, everything. They're about an inch in diameter and come in frosted/clear color combos. Pretty cute for $2.97.

If they were displayed together, like a mantel or table area, etc...what comes to my mind is filling them with pinecones, with one color of the season i.e. red, gold, silver, or green in each. Anyway, it's just an idea. I do love the idea of plumwater cottage, and the small Christmas ornaments.

What I like to do is place white candles in glass containers then add fresh cranberries around the candles. Works well for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. You could even put greenery around the base of the holders. The white, red and green of the three elements looks pretty. Linda

I was going to say small ornaments of a colour to match your decor, or pine cones. Coloured stones or even layers of coloured san would look nice. At a youth meeting we coloured some salt (as it is relatively cheap) with food colouring and layered it in a large glass bowl. It looked very nice.

Will apples fit in the bigger ones? Kumquats or lady apples? Cranberries? Christmas ornaments is another idea. Or, you could spray paint some nuts silver or gold for Christmas. Hard candies might be colorful, too. I have seen some people put wine corks in them, but you'd have to drink alot of wine. LOL

Be sure to post a pic of whatever you choose!

Hey Miss Ginger,

No ideas for your candle holders right now. Just wanted to say "Hi", and that I like the music you added to your blog. I think that's the same type of player that I added to my Myspace page. I've started a blog just to be closer to you. There's never enough hours in a day to stay near to the one's we love.

Love Ya!

I love pretty Christmas ornaments in them. I have bird eggs, real little nests in some of mine too.

Some mica gliter or cloves or allspice or all ..look so pretty with candles (pillars) in them.

Greens could be great with some mica glitter for fun.

acorns, pine cones..

some mossy grasses, and a sweet angel standing in the midst..
lots of fun,
fondly, Deena

I jsut bought three very similar huricanes. I went to the Dollar Tree and bought gold jingle bell ornaments, gold pinecones and small gold Christmas balls - for a grand total of $5.00. Cut the strings off because they were meant to be ornaments and they look great - they also have it in silver. Whatever your preference....Have fun! and thanks for stopping by my blog - nice to have a new friend in blogland.
