I have always admired these glass candle cylinders any time I've seen them! I use mine on my kitchen table, outdoor patio table, and even on my hearth with pumpkins, greens, pinecones, or berries during the Holidays! And, for that beach-side home, these look great with shells and driftwood! You can also remove the metal candle cup and use a taller candle. Whatever the setting, these candle cylinders look great!! You'll love deciding how to decorate them!!
