Welcome to Camp Paradise, our log cabin in Wisconsin. We live Up North in an area known as The Northwoods with thousands of lakes and acres of forests.
Living on a lake, I am always looking for beautiful nautical decor. For my project this month I made Nautical Candleholders.
My favorite DIYs are Simple + Quick + Inexpensive. And this project was all three. It cost under $20, only used a few supplies and took just minutes. The finished product was beautiful and will fit my home in so many ways.
I used a think jute twine to achieve the nautical look. I hot glued one end to the bottom of the vase and then twisted it around and around the vase until it was about 1/3 of the way up.
Then I cut the rope and glue gunned the other end to the vase. I didn’t leave any gaps in the rope, but kept each time around tight to the row below.
This project was just that simple. I added candles inside. You could do this same project with any size vase and vary up the fillers too. They would be cute full of bobbers or match the candles to the season or your decor.
I collect old books and love to stack them in all my vignettes. For this nautical scene I pulled out some blues and reds.
Changing out the pillows is another easy, quick decor change for the seasons. I bought out two of my favorite pillows from Chandler 4 Corners that have a nautical touch. Last Fall I redecorated my daughter’s room as part of The One Room Challenge in a nautical motif. You can see the details here.
The candle holders look great on the coffee table. I think they will work great on the mantel or the dining room table as well!
