Use individual crystal candle holders, a matching pair or groupings of different sizes to create a dazzling effect. Decorate candle holders with doilies or lace, or sprinkle colored sand at the bottom of the holders for a colorful effect. Colored candles in crystal candle holders also add to the play of light in the room and its ambiance.
Add colored sand or multicolored sugar sprinkles to the bottom of crystal candle holders to make them look different. To add to the play of light in the room, make colorful dots with wax or use old lace or doilies around candle holders of different sizes. Group them together with the smallest holders in front for a romantic look. For hanging crystal candle holders, consider using alternating color candles to add a splash of color to the room.
Arrange multiple crystal candle holders around a vase for a floral centerpiece on a dining table. For a more classic effect, place a wide-mouthed glass bowl with a candle at the center of the table, and set a crystal candle holder on either side of the bowl. An innovative way to use these candle holders is to use them for small floral arrangements. Sprinkle crystal beads at the bottom of the holder, and place a single flower in each candle holder. Tie an old lace ribbon around the top of the candle holder to complete the effect.
