I love to find new ways to incorporate the easy French lifestyle into my home. The French love to create beautiful tablescapes using natural elements.
Everything tastes better by candlelight. The embellished votives and hurricane’s are simple to make…
…and a visual feast for the eyes.
You begin with a piece of vintage métis linen that fits around the glass cylinder of your choice. Top it with a slightly thinner piece of linen in a lighter or contrasting color. After you layer the linen pieces on top of each other you can also add a thin piece of velvet.
Roll all three pieces around the glass then secure the fabric closed with a small straight pin. (You may also use double sided tape or for a permanent solution, use fabric or hot glue.)
You can then embellish further by using various hand dyed silk ribbons and vintage French medals.
The finished candle holders look so lovely.
To make the holiday season easier for you we have assembled a few inexpensive candle kits available in our Metis Linens Blogtique.
