In the fall, when the evening light comes on a lot faster than I’d like, I want to add little flickers of interesting light to the dark corners of my garden. I love the combination of plants and candles so, I came up with this trick — a planter that doubles as a candle holder.
These planters look great on their own – but can also be converted into a stylish lighting option for your garden by using one simple trick.
Fill bottom of pot with about 1-2 inches of soil and drop a smaller pot inside (about 1-2-inches smaller in diameter). Make sure you've added enough soil to the larger pot to make the rims even with each other.
Fill center pot with pea gravel and surround it with soil.
Place plants in the outer ring of soil.
Place candle in gravel and cover with a glass hurricane.
When the evening is over – just bring in the candle and the hurricane. This planter will drain water easily and will always be ready to hold a candle.
