A Quick and Easy Fall Decor Idea

Candles aglow

If you’re ready for a touch of Fall but not quite ready to pull out the big guns aka pumpkins here’s a quick idea for you.

Rustic Wood and Candlelight

While helping Tara with her accessories after she moved into her new home I made a quick centerpiece for her coffee table by gathering up a random assortment of her candles and grouping them together in this gorgeous, rustic wood bowl.

Coffee Table CenterpieceQuick. Easy. Done.

This is by no means a new concept but I love an idea that can be thrown together quickly and give you that instant change.

Rustic Wood Bowl with Candles

Years ago, I heard someone say (I think it was Martha Stewart) to always light unused candles, even if for just a few minutes, to take the newness off the wicks.

Such a simple, little thing but it makes a huge difference. Even if the candles are just for looks they now appear used instead of brand new.

Today I pulled out my all-time favorite candle for Fall. Mulled Cider by Tyler Candles. I could burn this candle all winter long. And often do!

Do you have a favorite scent for Fall? I’d love to try something new this year.

    I love your collection of candles of the beautiful fall colors…My mother taught me that I should always light the wicks of the candles, even if I was just using them for decoration…to give them “life”….A Feng Shui thing I believe…

    This is a very good idea and looks so pretty! I have a bowl so think I will get some candles and make one for myself. Thanks for sharing!

    Very pretty- I love a quick and easy project, and this is perfect to get me started on fall decor. I have to confess that I don’t light my “for decoration” candles, but now I’m thinking I should go right now and give them a quick burn.

    So pretty, I am a huge candle person. I have always lit my candles for just a few minutes to make them look homey and used. Now I am a huge Body and Bath Works jar burner so I don’t really use those kinds of candles anymore. Their scents are the best, they are the cleanest and burn to the bottom.

    That’s a cute idea. Big impact for a little change. I always light my candles, too, even if just for a couple of minutes. They look so much better. xo Diana

    Beautiful centerpiece Sonya, love her red rustic bowl! I sell Tyler candles in my shop and that’s one of my favorite scents too!
    Always a pleasure having you share at Amaze Me Monday, thanks!!!

    I love that beautiful wooden bowl – have never seen one like it! And the runner you made underneath it is gorgeous. You always have such interesting fabric mixes.

    I love all the colors you mixed together. They look gorgeous. I love pumpkin spice scented candles so they are all pumpkin color. It is a good thing I like that burnt orange look/

    I’ve heard Martha say that about lighting candles, just to give the wick a used look. I really like the idea of a grouping of candles in the big bowl!
