Unusual votive candleholders - perfect for any home decor

Updated on August 21, 2013

Unusual votive candleholders - the most unique of unique!

i found these unusual votive candles while looking for dessert shooter glasses (dessert shooters are mini desserts made in very small glasses). I used to be more of a fan of wax candle votives, before 95 year old Mom started in on oxygen, and before I got a cat who is curious about anything flickering.

Ah, but I didn't let the above deterrents stop me when it came to unusual votive candleholders with which to adorn the center of my dining room table. I simply use battery operated candles now! These flameless candles give my room the same flickering light as regular candles but are much much safer. Regardless, the flameless candles will fit into any standard votive candleholder so don't fear if you're also moving away from wax votive.

Unusual votive candles would make a great Valentine's Day gift - just fill with pink, rose scented votive candles, sprinkle some rose petals on the table (or on the bed - ooh la la) and, voila! Instant sexy!

This sturdy votive candleholder gets raves for customer reviews. It rated 4.5 out of 5 stars with a total of 7 review. One person gave it just one star but their review seems based on the fact that this unusual votive candleholder is larger than they expected - it stands about a foot tall. So, be prepared.

Complement your unusual votive candleholders with some matching wall sconces

I think a few votive wall sconces would really complete the decor of the dining room - especially if they match the beautiful votive candleholders you're using as the centerpiece for your table. I love these!

More unusual votive candleholders for the wall

Wall sconce votive candleholders really add a flair to the room. I especially like that they're out of the way, however, I live in a 160 year old farmhouse so I'd never put an open flame next to my walls - ever. I only use battery operated candles (flameless candles) with these beautiful votive wall sconces:
