So as you all know, Nate and I are on a budget and currently saving for such items as a couch, curtains, and paint. Therefore, holiday decorations are taking a back-burner this year when it comes to spending. But as you also know, I’m just as determined as ever to see the house looking festive!
This acorn candle-holder idea killed two birds with one stone, so to speak. (I do promise, however, that no birds were harmed in the making of this). 🙂 We bought two end-tables and a coffee table from Pier One, but haven’t yet saved up for the lamps. I didn’t want the end-tables to be empty for the house-warming, so I added a candle to each. The glass bowls were a $1 each at a dollar store, the acorns were $4 at a craft store, the candles were 50 cents each at Walmart. In total, I spent $7 for some cozy Thanksgiving decorations… and now we can put off buying lamps even longer!
All you need to do is fill a glass dish with acorns from a craft store. Add a bit to the bottom first , then place a small candle on top. Afterward, pour the remaining acorns around it.
