Totally doable holiday lighting trick

Wintertime in Sweden (our home turf) is big on cozy lighting. Hey, it’s dark up here! Think lots and lots of candles. Sure we love them but sometimes it’s nice to shake things up a bit. Here are a few illuminating ideas to try out this season.

This one is super simple! Cut a winter landscape out of white paper (it can be as minimal or intricate as you like), wrap it around a cylinder vase and fasten with tape. Top it off with water, add a floating candle, and there you have it—easiest lighting decoration ever.
