Autumn Lights

rustic-votive

As the autumn days get shorter, you may be looking for different ways to add warmth and light to your fall decor. These ideas would fit right in! Like this one from iVillage–tie fall leaves around the outside of glass jars with twine and–to be on the safe side–add a battery-powered imitation votive candle or tea light inside the jar–that way you have “candlelight” that is safe as well as pretty!

Here’s a similar idea with a fall flower tucked into the twine wrapped around the glass jar. You could also use artificial autumn leaves and flowers–that way you could use your autumn votive holder from year to year.

This is a fun candle centerpiece idea! Miniature Indian corn is arranged around a pillar candle and kept in place with twine. Make sure you keep your bow small and away from the area of the candle flame.

Or, instead of Indian corn, surround your candles with cinnamon sticks!

Turn pumpkins and apples into natural holders for your candles!

Or use hanging lanterns for a warm, homey, rustic touch.

What favorite ways do you have of adding soft, restful lights to your fall decor?
