These wonderful tin candle holders are just like the ones made so long ago. We are lucky enough to be able to import them from the Bavaria region of Germany, where they are made by the same companies that made them so long ago. Each candle holder has an outside diameter for about 2 inches and easily hold the 7/8-inch diameter candles that are included in the set. To use the holders with smaller candles, simply squeeze the outer holder prongs slightly. For wider candles, spread the prongs slightly.
As shown in the picture, each candle holder has a nail at the bottom, so that you can just press it easily in to Styrofoam (like the ball we used for illustration), straw or even live wreaths. We love these because you can rearrange them as you please - use a traditional wreath, or even a straight log to display them!
In the United States, advent wreaths traditionally use 3 purple and 1 pink candle. However, we've chosen to include the old-time red candles that were originally used. Of course, you can replace these with your own candles, if you wish.
Each set is wrapped in festive net for presentation and includes 4 holders and 4 red candles (measuring 7/8 inch in diameter by 3-1/4 inch tall).
We are showing 2 sets for illustration only. Styrofoam ball not included.
Never leave candles burning unattended. These are best used as decorative pieces only. Burning the candles on a tree is a great fire hazard that you certainly want to avoid.
