Time to get cosy with my Ikea candle holders

Now that it's getting darker earlier, and there's a chill in the air, it's time to start getting cosy.  On a recent excursion to Ikea, I picked up some cheap and cheerful candle holders and while this is *technically* a home decor post, I've blogged about candles lots, so you can put those candles into these holders!


The holder on the left is €6.50 while the smaller one is only €2.00.  What I love about these candle holders is that they look just as pretty in the daylight as they do at night.  The delicate design allows for the light to shine through and cast a pretty light against the wall.  I put my large candles like this one from La Bougie in the big holder so not only does it look pretty, but it smells amazing too!  I use the smaller holder for little tea lights and have them in a couple of places around the house.



By far my favourite candle holders ever!  Do we like?  Let me know if you've seen any other pretty holders as I'm on a mission now to start collecting them!
