September means that it's time to start some fall decorating (so I can pretend it's not 100 degrees outside). Candlesticks and candleholders are easy ways to get that cozy feeling of fall. I can't wait to deck the mantel with some flickering light. When do you start decorating for fall? — Elaina from Fun Finds for Mom
Of course there have to be paint-dipped candlesticks, considering how huge this trend has become. These are actually rubber-dipped and look pretty cool.
This candleholder by Ferm Living lets you arrange the wood spheres in whatever shape you like: wavy, linear or circular.
I bet the candlelight looks beautiful flickering through the perforated designs on a dark night.
Mmmm, concrete. I love the simplicity of these pillars.
Simple white candlesticks — what's not to love?
These are my favorite of all. Based on children's stacking blocks, they can be mixed and stacked to create different looks.
Something about this color and shape combination looks like a fresh take on the midcentury modern style.
I had to show you the wood and white; it's just so fun.
These silver orbs offer high style at an unbelievably low price.
I love the wooden geometry in these candleholders.
Wow! I didn't realize candlesticks could be so sexy!
If you get into spooky decor, you'll love these new candlesticks from Pottery Barn. Look closely: They're bones.
The designer of these Distortion candlesticks used computer imagery and 3-D printers in his creative process to come up with these strangely wonderful pieces. They remind me of Alice in Wonderland.
These chunky wood candleholders would look great on a big coffee table.
These super fancy candlesticks come in sets of two. I'd pick the white ones.
Add a little drama with a wall-mounted, metal candlestick that reflects the light. These are very well priced. I'm tempted.
