Make Your Own Candle-lit Photo Stands

Three photos, three frames, some vellum paper, a votive candle and a little sephia. How does Martha do it?

Her simple candle-lit photo stands are inexpensive to make and allow you to easily change up the photos whenever you like.

We bet Martha would call ‘em the perfect dinner party centerpiece, but we think they look great just about anywhere.

A few quick tips: use bright colorful frames for a bedroom or kitchen, dark or black frames for your desk, and try these superfly flickering LED candles for longer-lasting everyday illumination.
