Fall Farmhouse Candle Display
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!?

Hi, Ashley! This idea is amazing! I’ll try to do this too and I’ll put it near my work table. I like scented candles near me because it makes me focus on whatever that I am doing. Thanks for this wonderful idea! Xoxo
Edited I love this. Sorry about the wrong spelling of this.
I love thia.
It’s cool how we can make things look more beautiful by adding small elements to it. Thanks for sharing this great idea! Just add some lights and it is so perfect for the upcoming Christmas season 🙂
Beautiful. But it looks like a fire Hazzard between the wooden.handle over the flames and the candles sitting in flammable moss. Maybe I would use electric candles.
Love!!! Very cute and great for all seasons. Too bad readers skim too quickly to see you already cautioned us on lighting real candles…:(
I thought so. ????
I love this!!!!
Looks simple, yet beautiful, just don’t light them while they are surrounded by that moss!
Definitely not! Just for display, not for lighting in this particular instance 🙂 Thank you for your kind comment!
Thank you for this super easy idea! I have a very similar old tool box. Looking forward to pulling this décor idea together.
Since you used real candles, you couldn’t light these as they might start the wooden handle aflame, but the look is great for sure, and battery operated candles could give the same look and provide the dancing flame light!
Yes, these are just for display! Lol 🙂 I would definitely not light them, and the fake ones would work perfectly for this type of box if you want the cozy look of them on. Great for fall!
Thank you so much! 🙂
