Use a cake stand for this! Love pillar candles grouped like this. You could put pink and purple ribbons around them as an advent wreath and then switch to a berry wreath and greenery or red ribbons at Christmas.
"Simple and Pretty ~mason jar, greenery, cranberries, water, tea light~ simple Christmas table centerpiece done! :-) Idea from Better Homes and Gardens. Definitely going to make some of these next year. Combine with epsom salt craft to top of jar?
