Living and Dining13 Best Candle Holders & Candle Sticks In Australia

With the power to power to lift moods and calm the mind, candles are among the most popular decor items in Australia. And because every candle deserves to be shown off in style, we’ve dug up the most beautiful candle holders and candle sticks in Australia.

Candle holders are traditionally used to hold candles upright and firmly in place – because an unstable candle is never safe, especially around soft furnishings like floor cushions and bedroom blinds. But with so many luxurious holders available nowadays, candle sticks are also making a name for themselves as designer decor pieces, and we are absolutely here for it.

What are the safest candle holders?

The safest candle holders are products that are non-flammable and stable, such as thick glass or ceramics. Of course, that doesn’t mean wooden holders are a no-go, it just means extra caution should be taken when using them.

What can I put on candle holders besides candles?

Aside from candles, you can put plants, flowers (fresh or artificial) and decorative objects like spheres or Christmas decorations in candle holders. If you are using jar holders, they double as useful storage vessels for craft supplies and makeup brushes.

How do you hold a candle in place?

To hold a candle in place, our favourite technique (from decades of candle love!) is to carefully drip some melted wax into the base of your holder and then place the candle on top of it. The wax works like glue, holding your candle proudly upright.

Remember to never leave candles burning unattended, especially around kids, pets and loose furnishings.
