Easy Nordic Boho Style Candle Light

As I’ve mentioned on Monday, my challenge these days is creating new to me decor with what I am already using. Budget friendly and minimal. I don’t have the room to store a lot and definitely not the room to store more decor. So changing things up and making it ¨new¨to me is what it’s all about lately. Today I want to show you this Easy Nordic Boho Style Candle Light that I made on the weekend as well.  You might have noticed, that I am adding some boho vibes to my decor lately. There are more black accents, and maybe it is a bit more masculine over all. I still adore the neutral & white Nordic style, that will probably never change. But I am also really loving these boho accents here and there.

Easy Nordic Boho Style Candle Light

What I’ve used:

– glass jar, this one is similar [I used the Ikea Ensidig glass jar, but it is currently unavailable. You can use any kind of wider round mason jar like the one I’ve suggested above. It is best to use a jar, so the bead string doesn’t slip off the top.]

wooden beads [I’ve used the beads my friend Michelle mailed me a while back, Thank you Michelle, still love them!!]

black plastic beads [smaller than the wooden ones]

black elastic string

artificial eucalyptus

candle [I have used my DIY concrete candle holders to put inside the jar]

I made two strings for the jar, simply adding the wooden and black beads to the elastic strings and then putting it around the top of the jar. [sorry for the lighting in the photo below… Saturday night crafting, haha.]

After that, I added the artificial eucalyptus leaves underneath the strings, no glue or anything is needed, as the elastic will keep it all in place. I only added one branch, leaving one side of the jar with just the bead strings.

And at last I put the concrete candle holder inside, because I didn’t have a candle and I like how it looks.

It is currently sitting on our dining room table and I think will stay there for a while… What do you think??

    Wondering if you couldn’t use a small clay pot and put a tea light inside instead of buying the candle shown in the article . I think they’re a little less expensive. Love the Idea.

      Barbara, absolutely, that would look great I’m sure! I love clay pots and I just linked to the candle to give another idea since I used my DIY concrete candle light. Thank you so much for the feedback and visit, I appreciate it!

    Katrin, I think the boho accents really complement the neutral Nordic decor you already have. The candle holder with the bead accent is beautiful and it is great that you are using what you already.

    It’s so beautiful, Katrin and it’s great that you could make it with things you already had. The tea candle holder is just perfect for this project and I like it better than just a candle. I love the boho accents you started to add to your nordic style.
    Thank you for your sweet comment on my sewing machine cover! 🙂

    This is really beautiful Katrin. The beads add such a nice touch to the whole thing. And I love your idea about reusing what you have in new and original ways. If we kept everything we’d made we would never have enough room for anything
