Candles are a simple way to add ambiance and character to a room. Whether a subtle addition in the background or a focal point on a table, candles are a must for any space. With the multitude of candle holders to choose from, I recommend picking something unique! Below are some of my favorite candle holders that set themselves apart from the typical!

Mason jars have definitely been a popular item the past couple years! From wedding décor to outdoor parties, these classic jars are incredibly versatile. I love the idea of painting the jars white and using as a candle holder! The soft, white glow gives off a calming and homey look! (via Tobi Fairley)

When you need that little bit of color splash…make a statement with candle holders! They are easy to move around and store so you are not committing to lots of color all the time. I love the hot pink glass of this Ikea piece! Ikea…oh how I do love you.

I love browsing Etsy in search of original DIY ideas. Glass bottles are frequently used in such projects, but I love how the silver base adds a more formal touch to these candle holders from Cabernet Lights. A great item for inside or outside!

How fun are these candle sticks from Gretel Home? Modern, romantic and so unique!

Whether on a side table, a mantle, or as a centerpiece, these candle holders are both dramatic and subtle. You are sure to get compliments on these guys!

Birch trees were a common sight to me during my visits to parts of northern Michigan. So, I was caught off guard when all of a sudden I began seeing birch tree décor popping up everywhere! These lovely candle holders from Simply Sofie are simple and rustic – a great way to bring in a natural element to your space.
