How-to Decorate with Candles

Candles can be a cost-effective home décor item that can really pull together a room and make your guests feel at home with a welcoming aroma – (like one of At Home’s 12 exclusive scents). At Home has you covered with how-to tips and tricks to make the candles complement your home with decorative holders, lanterns and more.

These modern LED lanterns have a bohemian look that can work with classic and contemporary styles. The thin design cutouts cast a lovely array of shadows across the walls. At varying shapes and sizes, you can add these to your patio table or line your window-sill. Take yours home for $12.99-$19.99.

We added a pop of color to a garden stool by placing a large candle in a brightly colored bowl. Also, look for ways to mirror or complement your décor patterns – similar to how we did with the circles outlining the bowl and stool. This decorative bowl and candle are available at $24.99 and $14.99, while the garden stool is priced $49.99 and available in other colors.

Since we’re all about extending the look and feel of your home to your outdoor areas, we recommend bringing your candles outside with the help of lanterns. These lanterns have a woodsy, but sophisticated, look and can be yours for $49.99.

Take holders similar to these home for $19.99-$34.99.
