Give pillar candles a garden-fresh look with crisp green vegetables.
Trim the asparagus and green beans so they're about half the height of the candles you're to decorate. Attach them using a glue gun, lining up the bottom of each vegetable with the candle base and placing them close together. Cut lengths of string and tie one around each candle, finishing with a bow.
