Shopping for home decor – decor that is both functional and affordable – can take a while. I was looking for decor that could be beautiful and functional. Every day glamor can definitely be hard to achieve when I wanted something minimalist, didn’t take up a lot of space, and still looked beautiful.
But one day, I looked at my tangle of bangles and bracelets and a picture of someone’s living room filled with candles and had this light bulb moment – why not use candle stick holders to artfully stack my jewelry (specifically my bracelets)?
I bought the IKEA BLOMSTER set of candle sticks – these are simple, glass candle stick holders for taper/long pilar candles. The shape is lean and long which is perfect for stacking cuffs. Note that it is more difficult to stack delicate bracelets if they are of varying widths (the smaller ones will fall through the cracks!) But I do like the fun presentation of bracelets in a unique and way that doesn’t take up too much room!
Here is how I use the candle stick holders as the bracelet holders:
1. Stack the sturdiest/thickest cuffs at the bottom.
2. Place cuffs and bracelets askew to ensure that the bracelets at the bottom support the ones on top.
3. Remember to remove the bracelets when you actually burn candles (the wax can definitely overflow with this particular model of candle stick holders).
