One thing that I LOVE doing is staying simple & homemade for my Christmas Decor. There is just something so cozy about an old time Christmas. So I always try and decorate with timeless pieces, and simple elements from nature.
My sweet friend Brittany over at White Farmhouse made the cutest Christmas centerpiece using pomegranates. I thought it was such a great idea and just had to try it out for myself.
For my take on her pomegranates candlesticks, I just used the super skinny candles from Hobby Lobby (they were like a couple dollars for a TON of them)
I melted down an old candle until the wax was liquid.
You want to kinda press your finger into the pomegranate calyx (the little stem like area) This is where we will be placing our candle.
And then I dipped my skinny taper candles into the hot wax. I made sure to kind of dig up some of the more gooey warm wax at the bottom of the large candle.
Then I just placed the candle in an upright position inside the pomegranate. It just takes a couple seconds for the candle wax to dry.
Super cute! I was worried about how fast the candles would burn, but they actually burn slower than my expensive thick taper candles. And they don’t drip either, which I thought was crazy considering how crooked these candles are. I think their shape is adorable, btw, and I don’t mind that they don’t stand perfectly upright.
Honestly, I just had these ones lit for this picture (I don’t trust my kids to have them lit in this space for longer than that! Haha!)
These pomegranate candlestick holders also make a super sweet table centerpiece.
They kind of look like little red ornaments, which I think is super fun since they are really elements from nature.
No houses or bottle brush trees were harmed in the photographing of this tutorial. Haha!
That’s it for now. Merry Christmas friends!
