Create a beautiful fall farmhouse candle display in just a few easy steps. Makes for a great festive decor piece or even a tablescape centerpiece.
When it comes to decorating, I like clean and simple. I feel like I learn a lot everyday about my style and what I am drawn to, when at the same time it tends to shift a little every now and then. One thing that will probably always remain is my love for old wooden crates and boxes. I just love everything about them. Especially when they have a great worn patina, and they can be used for something useful.
I found this old wooden tool box at one of my go-to antique malls recently, and knew that I wanted to incorporate it into my fall decor somehow. So I raided my basement for some goodies to use for a little fall candle display. I love white pillar candles of all different sizes to stagger around the house, especially when the weather starts to get cooler. It just makes a space feel cozy to me.
Also, I have this super awkward little corner of our living room by our staircase that I have struggled with forever! I scored this antique dresser off Facebook Marketplace for twenty bucks, and gave it a little makeover, that I am just now realizing I never shared (whomp whomp). It fills the little spot there pretty well, and the wooden tool box looks great on top of it, so I played around with a candle display and am pleased with how it turned out.
FALL FARMHOUSE CANDLE DISPLAY – SUPPLIES NEEDED:
This post does contain affiliate links for your shopping convenience.
- Wood box or crate
- White Pillar Candles of different heights and sizes
- DISCLAIMER – Obviously for this particular project, these candles are just for display, I wouldn’t light them with their positioning in the crate with the moss and the handle, as that would be a fire hazard. Substitute for battery operated if you would like them “lit”.
- Pinecones (optional)
FALL FARMHOUSE CANDLE DISPLAY – DIRECTIONS:
Since the wooden tool box was a little too deep, I added some scrap wood to the bottom to give my pillar candles some height too. I was sure to just stagger the different candles sizes until I liked the way they were balanced out.
Once I had all the candles set up, I just started filling the box with some American moss. I filled the moss all around the candles and any open spots I could find.
This little DIY is so quick and simple, and for a fall touch, I added some little pinecones in with the moss too. As always I like that projects like this one are super customizable. You can switch up the candles and use a different kind of moss for a different season. I love that!
I am so excited to share more fall posts with you guys soon! If you’ve been here long enough, you know I am obsessed with this beauty of a season! Is it your favorite too!?
