A pillar candle holder can be metal, wood, or glass. The choices of candle holders are almost as endless as the different types of pillar candles. A frosted glass pillar candle holder is the perfect one to choose for your aromatherapy candle. The frosted glass accentuates the color of the candle and protects the wood of your table at the same time. If you relay like to match the wood of the furniture with the candleholder, then you can choose a wooden pillar candle holder. Metal holders for pillar candles are also very elegant and have intricate carvings.
Although pillar candles are usually round, they can be any size that you want. If you make your own candles, this is the perfect opportunity to get creative and make different shapes of candles. Since most pillar candle holders have a wide base to hold candles that are about 3 inches in diameter, you can still use oddly shaped candles with these holders. A pillar candle holder can be only big enough for one candle or it can be a plate large enough to hold three or four candles of various sizes.
Whatever décor you have, you can have a pillar candle holder to match. For example, you can have carved candle holders or ones designed as beautiful candlestick holders. Pillar candles make great centrepieces and with the right candleholder you can create just the right ambiance for any room of your home. Pillar candle holders make great gifts for any occasion and since they are relatively inexpensive, you can pick up different kinds for different occasions.
A wrought iron pillar candle holder is a wonderful decorating idea for your home because the iron can be made into different shapes. Try a Celtic design for your pillar candles or have the iron shaped into flowers or even dolphins to hold scented pillar candles. Pewter and copper are also materials commonly used to make pillar candle holders. Pewter is a resilient material and matches any décor. Copper candle holders really accentuate an autumn theme and these come in all types of styles.
A pillar candle holder is one of the oldest types of candleholders. It is fashioned after the tall brass candlesticks and adds a touch of elegance to any pillar candle.
