This Christmas Candle Table decoration is guaranteed to light up those dark, chilly and pretty breezy winter nights!

One of my absolute favourite things about Christmas is all of the festive decorations around the place (not just the gifts from Father Christmas). And it’s not just Christmas that gives me that joyous cheer either… I love ringing in the new year with a few (okay maybe a number) of glasses of wine, surrounded by friends and beautiful decorations. When the weather is dark and miserable, and daylight saving time means that you see sunrise and sunset, there is no better way to decorate the house.

What I like the most about the Christmas candle table decoration is how easily you can make it. And, once it’s made, how great it looks (even though you’ve not had to spend too much making and creating it)!

You will need:

  • Greenery (holly/ ivy etc.)

  • Pine cones

  • Ferns

  • Roses

  • Gold/ White/ Silver Spray (Depending on the colour of your house, cutlery etc, you may want to spray your leaves and walnuts a different colour!)

  • Candle

  • Candle holder to place into the oasis.

  • Oasis

  • Base to place the oasis in (must be waterproof!)

  • Walnuts

  • Artistic talent (maybe)

  • Take the oasis and cut it so that it fits snugly into the container.

  • Dampen the oasis.

  • Spray the walnuts and ferns in the colour of your choosing.

  • Trim your greenery into similarly sized pieces. Make sure that you have shorter ones for the center and longer pieces for the bottom of your piece.

  • Start adding greenery into the base of the oasis. Layer from the bottom and work your way up to the center. Add thicker greenery like pine branches first and work your way up to adding holly and bay leaves in the center.

  • Make sure that you leave a hole in the center of the oasis for your candle!

  • Once the entire oasis is covered with greenery, you can start adding your decorative pieces.

  • Add your roses, sprayed fern leaves and walnuts.

  • Place at the center of your table and enjoy!

Never leave the decoration unattended while the candle is burning and make sure that the leaves are nowhere near the flame. Also, stop burning the candle when it gets too close to the oasis (obviously)!
