home decor accent: wine cork candles

these are the coolest! they're candles made to look like wine corks and can turn any bottle into a decadent candle holder. the bottom is tapered so it fits perfectly in the bottle opening.

Joey got them for me as a gift from Uncommon Goods (set of 12 for $22 - they have champagne cork candles too) - but they're sold all over the internets too ($4 - $9). they would make a great house-warming gift along with a bottle of wine!

in the photos i have cork candles in a decanter i got from a garage sale, a flip top beer bottle and an used wine bottle that had a smiley face label... get creative and cork-y-candle-y!
