Candles are a staple in our lives for a reason — they’re inexpensive, easy to use and get the job done. Elevate them to the next level by placing them in a glass vessel filled with water and let them float all night. Tall and skinny, short and plump or a simple glass bowl will do the trick! Along with the water, add some cranberries, flowers or greenery to the vessel for an added pop of color.
