DIY Candle Centerpieces

Looking for an easy way to make your own candle centerpieces? Martha Stewart offers brides (and other hostesses) an easy to make summer centerpeice.

Candles make eye-catching centerpieces and these sand and shell centerpieces add ambiance to any occasion. I'd love to use them at a beach wedding reception.

These are easy to make and great for outdoor because they keep the candles from blowing out. I prefer the tone on tone look shown above but you could go with colored sands or candles as well.

Just use candle adhesive to secure the tapers to the bottom of the heat resistant glass vases and pour in some sand around the candles. Then add a few shells  so each centerpiece looks like a piece of the beach.
