Using Candles For Christmas Decorations

Updated on March 21, 2011

The lovely thing about Christmas decorations is that you can use almost anything to create a holiday environment. You don't have to spend a lot to get a lovely holiday look. Some of the best things to use if you are searching for a cheap way to spice up your holiday decor are candles. The nature of candles allows for an easy Christmas decorations theme. You can use an abundance of candles and a select few accessories to get your home ready for the winter season.

Where you buy your candles will have a big impact on how much you spend this year on holiday decor. You can choose to buy expensive candles, if you are willing to pay the price.

You can just as easily get appropriate candles at your local dollar store however. They may not be as large but discount stores are the best place to purchase smaller candles for your decor. You will also need to visit your local candle shop or your local craft store for specialty items and larger candles.

When thinking about your candle decor, consider using several colors. You can go with traditional colors of the season, like red and green. You can also go with colors that match your Christmas tree decor. If you are looking for colors that basically go with anything, consider gold, silver, white, ivory, and mustard colored candles. These colors can look festive without looking too traditional. It really depends on the look you are going for.

You will need to think about where you will place your candles when buying. Making a list of what sizes you need is a great place to start. It is stressful to get to the store and have no idea what you need for your decor. If you are creating a theme around candles for this holiday season, then you need to use quite a few to get your theme across successfully. Try mixing colors as well as sizes for the best look.

When it comes to candle accessories, there are many options. If you like a tailored look, try finding holders with clean lines. You can also simply set candles on platforms, like a mantel, and decorate around them. You can use simple holiday garland to get a lovely look for your decor. Lace and beading is also lovely with candles. You can add just about anything around candles to get them to have a more festive look. Use inexpensive accessories to cut down on your decor costs.

Using candles for Christmas decorations is a nice way to give your home a classy and elegant look for the holidays. You can purchase candles at your local discount store and save a bundle. Use many candles for the best themed look and mix several colors together to get the best decor possible. If you are trying for an easy and inexpensive way to change your holiday decor this year, try using candles for Christmas decorations.
