Saw this online and had to share. If there is one thing that can set the mood for outdoor entertaining, it's candles. Flickering firelight on a warm evening, after the sun goes down and the day comes to an end, can set a relaxing and romantic mood. Whether you are enjoying the quiet space by yourself, or entertaining under the stars, here is a great DIY idea for a stylish outdoor candle using pots.
Simple idea: Make a flower pot candle planter with two terracotta pots, some pebbles, annuals, and a pillar candle. Easy Peasy!
Flowers and candles are meant to go together if displayed out in the garden. Fill your pot with whatever blooms you like, as long as the plant material stays below the candle height when lit. This makes a gorgeous table decoration for outdoor meals.
What you need:
2 terracotta flower pots - one large and wide and one small and tall.
Annuals in 4" nursery pots.
Small River Stones
Set the wood block in the bottom center of the large pot. Place annuals in nursery pots into the larger pot, around the wood block. Set the smaller pot on the wood block and fill with 1/3 river rocks. Set the pillar candle on the river stones and set out in the garden.
