Moss Candle Holders: How to Add Style to Your Outdoor Decor

I love the ambience that outdoor candles can bring to a deck or patio.  One of my favorite summer pastimes is to spend an evening relaxing on my back porch with the hubby, a bottle of wine, and the soft glow of an outside candle. Awww…. the carefree days of summer await me. This nature-inspired vase will go perfect in any intimate outdoor setting.  The best part about this craft is that it is fast and simple – my type of project!

Place your candle in the glass vase and fill it in 1/3 of the way
 with your small pebbles.

Take your scissors and cut a strip of moss about 5 inches in width.  Take the strip and start gluing around the vase until the moss meets end to end. Depending on the size of your vase you may need to cut more then one strip in order to wrap the entire vase. That’s all folks – you now have yourself some simple but elegant décor.

What kind of décor do you like to include in your outdoor spaces?

It looks gorgeous, but as it melts down, won't the wax go through all the pebbles?

Thanks Miserychick! In regards, to the wax melting into the pebbles I have found as long as I trim the wick that doesn't seem to happen. The candle seems burn and melt into the center hollow part of the candle. Hope that answers your question!
