Fairy-Sized Candles

The tiniest of lights, hardly bigger than a firefly. Acorn cap candles burn for mere minutes — one might imagine that it would be barely enough time for a tiny creature to make the path from one ancient oak to the next…

These enchanting acorn cap candles (below) are a product of Etsy’s prettydreamer, whose studio is nestled in wooded Southern New Hampshire. These fairy-sized candles burn quickly — they last for only 7-18 minutes.

Very similar in concept, these Walnut Shell candles (below) are a product of Danita Berg’s Green Baboon Designs. These candles burn much longer: 60-90 minutes each. As a bonus: both acorn and walnut candles should be float-worthy.

Make them yourself! The Gunny Sack’s easy DIY has helpful hints such as poking the acorn caps into a large piece of styrofoam to keep them in place while pouring the hot wax.

Has anyone purchased or made these? We can envision them floating in a centerpiece on a table. Enchantment-themed dinner party anyone? These are just the magical fairy-sized lights…
