Home decor is a reflection of one's personality and these crying candles are a playful yet morbid trinket to add to any household.

Based out of Korea, 'The Jacks' released this collection of candles that are shaped to create a visual effect when melting. The company was founded by a group of friends from Hongik University in Seoul, South Korea who eventually used Kickstarter to fund production of their product.

The candle itself is placed in a holder that is shaped as a deer, skull or rabbit -- the candles include antler, brain or ear accents. When lit, the objects melt through their eyes, creating a crying effect that is enhanced with their ceramic candle holders. These crying candles use playful colors and shapes to quickly turn fun elements into frightening imagery.
