I love coffee and the smell of coffee. So when I needed to come up with a center piece for a Thanksgiving table I decided I wanted something that involved coffee and candles. After searching online for ideas I came up with the idea below.
I started first by finding all the items I would need:
Coffee beans about 1/2 lb
Square glass candle holders (I found a set of 3 that included different sizes)
2 Vanilla pillar candles
1 Vanilla tea light candle with foil wrapper
String (I went with dark brown because it complimented the coffee beans)
This is what my handle holder looked like before adding anything.
The first step for the candles is the take the corn husks and wet them. This will soften the husk and allow you to wrap it around the candle. Once you have the candle wrapped, use the string and tie it around the candle and wrapped husk. This will help to keep the husk in place.
Have you tried making your own accent candles? Leave me a comment and share your experience.
