I love entertaining during the holiday season, and this easy DIY pine cone and ever green candle bowl is the perfect addition to my holiday spread.
This lovely candle bowl is simple to do and very elegant when displayed. It will make a lovely addition to any holiday table and is low enough for conversation too.
Candles have become a part of the Christmas holiday decor so it’s always fun to do another DIY project involving them. (See my easy DIY peppermint candle project here.)
Note: Hot glue guns, and heated glue can burn. Please use extreme caution when using a hot glue gun. Learn to use your tool properly before you start any project.
DIY pine cone and ever green candle bowl
To make this project you will need the following supplies:
- a wooden serving bowl
- 4 wooden candle cups
- wood stain
- Hot glue and glue gun
- 1 medium pillar candle
- 4 smaller pillar candles the size of your candle cups
- pine cones
- aerosol snow
- fir garland material
Stain the candle cups the color of your bowl, (or both to get the best match). Allow to dry.
Using hot glue, attach the candle cups to four areas of the bowl and let them set.
Lightly spray the edges of the pine cones with aerosol snow and let dry.
Place the medium sized pillar in center of the bowl. Surround it with some fir greenery and place the pine cones around the candle.
Insert the small pillars into the candle cups. Light and enjoy. Now you have your own pine cone and ever green candle bowl! I hope you enjoy it.
You can also do variations on this bowl by putting in different greenery. Poinsettias would be a great choice because National Poinsettia Day falls in the middle of December, and they’re also a symbol of Christmas.
