The waning days of summer mean it’s time to cozy up your house and welcome fall. It’s time to break out the soft flannel throws, fuzzy slippers, and candles. The good news is, the fall theme does not mean you have to give up your beach decor.
Here are some fun ideas to DIY candles for your beach style home. Summer may be nearing an end but the beach means summer can linger a little longer.
