Decorating Mexico Style – Clay Roof Tile Candle Sconce

by THAT Painter Lady

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

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.

Clay roof tiles are the best for any property. Santafe also offers great, vibrant colors at an affordable price. Also, it is important to see the warranty on the products you are buying for your roof, and how much water the roof tile absorbes. that will give you an idea of the maintenance it will need.
