Votive candles bring a bit of extra twinkle to any tablescape, but they add some unique holiday spirit when they’re displayed in these candle holders surrounded by Diamond In-Shell Mixed Nuts.

For this project you will need:

  • Large votive candles
  • Large glass votive holders (we used these in different shapes and sizes)
  • Diamond of California Mixed In-Shell Nuts


First, place the candles into the glass votive holder.  It is important to do this first to ensure that the candles remain steady, rather than move on top of the nuts!

Fill the area between the candle and the votive holder with our Mixed In-Shell Nuts, about halfway up the candle.



Easy as that!  These quick crafts make for a festive holiday centerpiece that is sure to compliment any holiday decor.
