When you still want to see a glow in your fireplace in the warmer months of the year, fill your fireplace with candles. You can also create this simple look in the winter months if you don’t want to deal with the hassel of fireplace logs. This is such an easy way to create a beautiful glowing flocal point in your room and is a very hot trend in home decor lately. Many companies are now selling candle accessories that fit right into your fireplace for this exact purpose.
If you don’t have the money to buy a candle accessory for your fireplace, here’s the inexpensive way to do it:
Use bricks or flat wood to create different levels of height in your fireplace. Place votives in clear glass votive holders on the varying “homemade shelves” you’ve created. Light the candles and enjoy!
