Decorate Your House With Stunning Pillar Candles
Pillar candles are thick, round and come in several heights. Pillar candles are candles which are extremely wide, allowing them to be burned for an extended period of time, since they have more wax available to fuel the flame. There are a variety of ways to use pillar candles, and they come in an assortment of shapes and sizes. Most stores which stock candles carry pillar candles, along with accessories which are designed to accommodate them, and they can be very useful to keep around the house, in the event of a power outage or simply to dress up the table for entertaining. Pillar candles can be burned in a number of ways. The use of a candle holder is highly recommended to catch wax, stabilize the candle, and reduce the risk of fire while the candle burns. Some people simply burn pillar candles on plates or trays, but there are also candle holders specifically designed for pillar candles. Some of these candle holders use deep bowls to firmly seat the candle, while others are flat, with spikes which are designed to impale the candle, holding it in place.
In addition to being purchased in stores, pillar candles are also easy to make at home. Candle wax and wicks are available at many craft stores. To make a pillar candle, the wax is melted and poured into a mold, with the wick held firmly in place. Crafters can make their own pillar candle molds, purchase molds, or use various objects as molds to create unusual shapes and textures. Molds can also be lined with artifacts like dried flowers and leaves to add visual interest to the candle.
