Hang Beeswax Candles

Decorate your home with natural beeswax candles for a casually elegant look. You can enhance any wall in your home with beeswax candles or suspend the candles from your ceiling using a lantern. Beeswax candles are known for their bright, long-burning flames. They give off the subtle, sweet scent of honey and naturally freshen the air, while their natural tan hue coordinates with almost any style or decor. Does this Spark an idea?


1. Choose your candles. Beeswax candles come in a variety of sizes and shapes, such as tapers and pillars. You can also choose smaller candles, such as tea lights and votives, for smaller wall displays.

2. Pick a candle holder on which to hang your candles on the wall or from the ceiling. Complement beeswax candles' rustic appeal by choosing black wrought iron wall sconces. A pillar candle will fit inside a lantern for an elegant look.

3. Affix the beeswax-filed wall sconces to the wall using a hammer and nails. Place two sconces on either side of your couch as a decorative touch. You can also attach them on the wall above your bed to add ambiance.

4. Suspend a candle lantern from the ceiling. Attach a small chain to the end of the lantern and screw a hook into the ceiling. Hang the lantern chain from the ceiling hook. There is a large variety of lantern styles to choose from, including stained glass, wrought iron and copper; choose the look that complements the room's decor. Hang the candle lantern over your dining room table to provide a soft lighting element.
