Floating candles were molded with a small bottom and a wide top to make them float in water. These candles can be made with any candle wax such as paraffin or soy wax. They are virtually easy to make, and a lot of DIY instructions can be easily found online.
Floating candles have been very popular over the years, and continues to do so. This is because there is no alternative to the beauty and the sophistication these candles can bring to any area. This kind of candle can be used for any occasion, but one of the most popular is weddings. You might have seen these candles used as table centerpieces. Floating candles for centerpieces add a lot of style to any situation. They are usually placed in clear bowls which makes them easily seen. You can mix classic colors such as white and black floating candles or get creative with other vibrant colors. Another great party idea is to have these candles in your pool while you hold a solemn outdoor dinner part for friends. It will surely make your dinner more unforgettable, and all because you lit a few candles to accentuate the area.
There are probably a thousand designs and colors for these candles. You can easily found some shaped like a rose, a bird, a heart and even a baby. There are also less complicated designs such as circles and half moons, which are equally great for any party. If you are looking for a specific design but can’t see them anywhere, you can make floating candles with your own mold instead. This is better than wasting time looking for something that you won’t probably see, or settling for a different design than what you had in mind.
One major advantage of floating candles is that they are very safe. These candles sink and extinguish themselves when they burn down. Since they are surrounded with water, catching fire is very minimal. Some people use other materials to float with the candles such as flowers, and they are too often too soaked in water to catch fire.

The company’s Small Origami Floating Boat Candle is a very beautiful creation. Measuring 1.13 inches in both height and width, they make the perfect centerpiece for a Japanese dinner or maybe for a baby boy’s first birthday. With a burn time of 2-4 hours, you are assured that they will be burning for the whole duration of the party making it unnecessary to waster precious time checking on them every now and then.
