Grass Candles…


Today I want to share with you one of the easiest spring projects I have completed this year…if not ever!

Embellishing pillar candles with blades of real grass…

Step 1 :

All you need is a few white pillar candles, and a few grass clippings from your own yard…

If you don’t have grass available in your yard, you can always use wheat grass blades. They can be found at most nurseries in seed form. They grow amazingly fast, just plant in soil, water, and the blades will begin to grow in a matter of days!


Step 2 :

Just use regular white glue to adhere each blade around the candles. Be sure to vary the length of your blades so they look like naturally growing grass…

Once again, I love being able to just go outside and use natural elements to decorate for the different seasons. Sometimes the simplest touches can be all you need…

How are you decorating your table for spring? What is your favorite way to bring the outside in?
