  • I think it is darling! If you are into bling, hang random mismatched chandelier crystals from it that you pick up here and there. Can also use pipe cleaners to attach faux or real flowers - or how about pom poms? Decorate with bows.

      Well, my intention was the patio...I did not want all that fire from the candles in the house..

    You might want to spray it with glossy gold or silver. Use battery-operated votive candles in all the little spaces. And I like the mismatched crystals idea. Best wishes 😇

    Hello Melissa; Your candle stand is just Lovely!!!!
    If it were mine, I would add some Fairy lights to it, as well as the candles!!
    It would be Stunning to use on a Patio.
    I wonder if tea lights would look nice in it??
    (It is so hard to tell from the photo, if they would fit well)
    If so, I would purchase the fake ones, and use the Fairy lights with them!!!
    You could use it inside, if you did that as it would not be a fire hazard.
    I hope that this helps you!!! Take Care!

    I think it would look great with a bunch of little cheap solar lights from the dollar tree in the cups. Just remove the metal stakes and use clear liquid nail to attach .

    I love it! I would paint it black and put some spectacular candles in it. I have also gotten clients those battery operated candles at christmas time, you could decorate around the candle with some nice paper/foil. I've brought them clients at christmas time at the Humane Society Christmas Store. They always have them.
    I believe I've seen the small votive type luminaire battery-operated ones at Dollar Tree too.

    Drape crystal beads around each tier to add to the sparkle of battery operated votives (dollar store) in each cup.

    Can you remove the bottom stand and place it upside down at the top? You could then add chain and hang it like a chandelier. You could spray paint it the colour of your patio furniture, and wrap string lights and add solar lights to the cups. You could add greenery or flowers if that is a style that you like.

    I know you said you wanted to use it at night, but since you mentioned Christmas, I would wrap thick boas around the tiers like garland, use battery operated votives/solar lights and then add white, "crystal", clear or silver Christmas balls, pearls, baby's breath etc.

    Alternatively, you could spray paint it another colour, and decorate with similar colours.

    It would also make a great centrepiece at the head wedding table.

    Really nice candle holder! I think it would like great spray painted in a bright coloured paint & you could use solar tea lights in it or even regular tea lights. Good luck!

    This would look cute on a porch table or step with small timer tea candles during Christmas

    Paint a bright color put those little small battery operated lights that look like they go in candle holders you already have the cups for them on the light fixture and hang it in the yard from a tree limb for a nifty light to have in the yard just to relax under after dark and enjoy the stars.
