Everyday bottles can be turned into stylish candleholders by removing the labels and adding some greenery. Select thin fronds so they will fit through the tops of the bottles. Once foliage is in place, fill bottles with water and pop a candle in the top. Leave a small gap between the water and the base of the candle. These are lovely grouped on a table or sideboard or would look equally enchanting as a Christmas table centrepiece. Segment side table in oak, $540, from Citta. Antipodes water bottles, $5-$7, from Farro. Candles, $5 a packet, from Look Sharp. Wall painted in Resene ‘Eighth Pearl Lusta’. All other items stylist’s own.
Make sure to rinse foliage under water first to get rid of any dirt or bugs so they don’t cloud the water. yhg
