If you are determined to make more out of these budget-friendly decorating tools take a look at the following ideas to get creative with candles. With a little imagination and know-how you can transform these essential home accessories so they are in-keeping and augment the overall style and décor of your home.
Bleeding Candles Step by Step
If you’ve got a colour palette that includes red in a room in your home, the bleeding candles feature could work well. Similarly if your home décor has a Gothic element or you are decorating the house for a ‘scary’ occasion such as Halloween, bleeding candles will bring an atmospheric element to the décor.
2- Knock some nails into the white candles (the older and rustier the nails are the better).
3- Light the red pillar candle and drip some of the wax onto the top and sides of the white candle.
4- Decorate a number of candles in this way and arrange together to create a blood curdling feature in the home.
These candles are really easy to create and are the prefect decorative piece for Halloween. They can be placed on party tables, around the home or even outdoors on the door step or garden patio. Check out our selection of Halloween candles for more inspiration.

One of my personal favourites when it comes to candles are Woodwick Jar Candles, these stylish jars of luxurious fragrance are complimented perfectly with a crackling wood burning wick. The comfort and relaxation that the sound of a crackling fire can bring is magical and you don’t have to have a real log fire when you have Woodwick Jar Candles in your home. It’s often a good idea to burn different fragrances in different rooms, for example you may want buttered rum in the lounge, currant in the kitchen and cotton flower in the bedroom, with the great range of Woodwick Jar Candles fragrances you can find one to suit every mood.
