This is one of the coolest Mexican Style Candle Scones I’ve ever seen. I like the fact that it is rustic in style. I am partial to the plain brown, as the turquoise color on the other style seems a bit contrived.
Traditional terra cotta roofing tiles are fitted with metal holders, finished with wrapped wire hangers, and transformed into candle sconces with a softly aged, rustic look. Hang them almost anywhere and they look right at home. Sconces may be used indoors or out, but please bring them in during extreme cold.
Update – I’m having a hard time finding these Roof Tile Candle Holders
Check these out:
Imagine have several of these hanging on your courtyard walls. They would give a soft glow and highlight the rustic nature of the sconce. The candle sconce would be particularly adapted to any home with a clay tile roof.
My patio does not have a tile roof at this time… someday maybe. But I do have a rustic hacienda style patio and I am seriously in need of some lighting along the outside walls. It would be much easier to hang a few of these rustic style candle holders than pay for electricity to be run and purchase expensive lighting.
I did find these Mexican style candle sconce which are a steal. They are almost 2′ tall!
I would use taller candles in these for a more authentic look. Because candles can blow out so easily… I’ve started to use the Flameless Ivory Wax Candles outside. They look real and the flame doesn’t blow out.
