Lanterns & Hanging Candle Holders
With many candles being used for decoration rather than any practical purpose, candle holders have taken on a decorative appearance. One of the most intriguing of these is the candle lanterns.... read more
As the name suggests, these are shaped like lanterns, but instead of having an oil well, they are lit with a candle. Some candle lanterns have the classic hurricane lamp design, while others are made of ceramic and have intricate designs.
Candle lanterns are interesting in themselves as a form of illumination, but the ones with designs cut out are even more so. With the candle burning inside them, the light shines through the holes in the design. The light pattern that results on the walls is completely different to the usual plain glow.
The flickering of the flame makes the patterns shift and move, leading to an even more dynamic design. Whether these candle lanterns are placed in the corner or in the centre of the room, they provide light and design.
In addition to the candle lanterns, you also have glass cups to fit in a taper, or a votive candle. You will also find wine glasses and goblets shaped candle holders. If you are looking to create a low and stationary candle arrangement you can also have candle plates and mirrors.
Candle plates are exactly what the name suggests- flat plates to put candles on. Candle mirrors are plates made of mirrors which bounce back the light the candle throws on them
Outdoor Candle Lanterns Make Your Garden Look like A Fairy-Land
Classic candle lanterns are great for lighting up your garden or the garden path for a party. The vintage design of the outdoor candle lanterns gives a quaint, old-world feel to your lawn. They also light up the way and highlight the areas you want to show off.
You can hang the outdoor candle lanterns from branches of trees to provide outdoor illumination without electric lights. The glass walls of these lanterns will ensure that the candle does not go out in a breeze, and you get plenty of light.
If you are looking for even more options, the glass cloche terrariums provide an unusual looking candle container. These containers, as the name suggests are meant as creative terrariums but their glass body makes them ideal candle holders. You can get hanging designs as well as ones that will sit on a table top.
You can use them as outdoor candle lanterns since they are covered. Moreover, they come in off-beat designs and look different from regular candle holders. You can hang them or place them on a table or the ground.
There are a number of creative ways to light up your house and the exterior of your house with candles. Candle lanterns and other forms of candle holders are a great way to do so in a fun and quirky manner.
