    I love the candles that look like they have fruit in them... like this:

    ... and when I looked at Yankee Candle's site to get that pic, I noticed some other cool stuff they do that I've not seen, like this and this.

    ... just a thought or three ;)

    Thanks, rickj! Those are really cute ideas! I will have to look for some cute little molds and melt down the wax and create my own creations!! I never thought to do that! Thanks again!

    When I did candles I also did ceramics. I found great boxes with lids. All different sizes and shapes, some with designs on top, some without and you could put decals on them. Then when the candle burns out, you have a small jewlry box. They sold like hot cakes. You can order them off the net quite cheap.

    Carving candles are cool my ex once had this one that was a carved light house. I think if you could do like the above a jewelrybox candle but have like secret treasures in side... those are cool sort of a grabbag candle. Also great for like 13 year olds or what not. You could try making like angles, fairies dragons and such those are always cool the scupted ones. I think if you could come up with a way to make one looked antiqued or like a book would be cool . I once saw a show about this gir who made coffee candles
    It'd be neat one lthat smells like coke in the shape of an old fashioned coke bottle... or candle paintings? Let me know if you need some more ideas :P pr like bable bottle chaped candles for like newexpecing bothers would be curte.

    Try working with different textures and embedding objects esp in gel candles. I made an aromatic candle by taking strips of cinnamon and sticking them to the candle with a little wax, I tried mashed herbs too and they give off a heavenly aroma.

    You can also make an ice ream candle by taking those tall ice cream glasses (coloured or plain) and fill them up with different coloured wax and applying wax froth on the top with a small wax cherry or decoration of your choice. To make the froth just beat the hot wax like eggs and you'll see the froth, skim it and apply with a knife.

    Hope that helps.

    Happy creating.
