To buy the fancy candle, or not to buy the fancy candle. That is (perpetually) the question. Our solution — forget the pricey light and elevate any ol’ wax specimen with this chic candle holder DIY instead!
Gemma Adams of the blog Blackbird really outdid herself with this illumination situation. The concrete holders look striking, minimal, and even somewhat Scandinavian-inspired. They’re just the thing to keep our homes cozy — and scratch our Scandi-design itch while we’re at it.
All that’s needed to create these understated beauties are cardboard containers like used milk cartons or Pringles canisters, some candles, and concrete mix. It’s easy-peasy, not to mention super affordable. Head on over to Blackbird for the how-to.
