21 Creatively Shaped Wax Candles

From Quirky Low-Tech Illuminators to Skeleton Revealing Candles

— April 7, 2014 — Art & Design
Candles are a great way to set the mood in any room -- instead of creating a boring atmosphere with traditional candles, get a creatively shaped candle to suit your interests. A wide variety of square and cylindrical candles are out there but this list focuses on the shapes that are less prominent. You'll find candles shaped as animals, food, architecture and more.

There's a candle for everyone out there; candles exist for the religious, the eco-conscious and even the facial hair enthusiasts. The amount of wax candle shapes that can be made really has no limit; the malleable nature of wax allows designers to sculpt whatever they can imagine.

Whether you're looking for a fun way to top a birthday cake or a quirky decoration for your home, this lists is sure to offer you some insight into the selection of oddly shaped candles that are available.
