Christmas is almost here! Can you believe it? I've been busy putting together a bunch of really fun and festive ideas for decorating a Christmas tablescape. I wanted to keep it classic and elegant, but also extremely simple. First up are these amazing oil candles. I'm still sort of in awe of how well they work, and how gorgeous they look on my table.
Watch the video above to see how you can easily make your own, or keep reading for step by step instructions. Enjoy!
Begin adding each ingredient to a mason jar. Arrange each item however you would like, just be careful not to overcrowd the jar.
Top everything off with a handful of fresh cranberries.
Fill the jar with water up until the point where the jar starts to narrow. If you would like the candles to be scented, you can also add essential oils to the water.
Top everything off with some vegetable oil or olive oil. There should be about 1/4 inch of oil on top of the water.
The next step requires a floating wick which you can purchase on Amazon here. Add a pre-waxed wick to one of the metal discs.
Place wick on top of the oil, light, and voila! These will burn for about 5 hours without the oil needing to be replaced. Once they burn out, you can try adding more oil. If necessary, replace the wick. I am thrilled with how these light up my Christmas tablescape. The colors are so vibrant and gorgeous for the season.
