7 Spooky Halloween Candles to Make You Scream with Delight!


Specifications

Height: 3.9″W x 4.1″H  Burn Time: 48 Hours (approx.)  Ratings: 4.8 Stars  Reviews: 15

Description

This Halloween candle is a novelty item. It is in line with the Halloween theme : a tiny plastic skeleton, taking a bath in the amber white wax in the ceramic cauldron. The lavender scent is mild but very pleasant.

My Personal Notes

I fell in love with this candle due to its more cute than creepy craft. The cauldron is a perfect example of spooky candle holders that can be repurposed later. I would also drop the skeleton in my fish aquarium to complement the sunken ghost ship. So it’s win-win! The fragrance is more floral than fall, i.e., citrusy sage. Nothing spectacular about the scent, but the pairing of the skeleton and the cauldron, the cute little wick are clever. It’s the perfect Halloween piece for your coffee table. No wonder this candle has made it to Amazon’s Top Choice in spooky Halloween candles.

The Downside

It’s a very small candle, and thus, expensive for this price.  If you love unique decorative candles, you won’t mind the price.

Height: 6 x 4.3″ Burn Time: 5 Hours (approx.)  Ratings: 4.6 Stars  Reviews: 17

Description

If you need a spooktacular scare, then try this skull candle. It is available in other color combinations.

My Personal Notes

  • Now this is a gothic-themed, very realistic and scary looking skull. The work on the skull, each groove and ridge, has been etched in a greater detail!
  • The idea is good! As the candle is lit, the eyes would glow first and then the wax would ooze and melt away like blood from the skeleton.
  • Once the candle burn reaches halfway, the candle hollows out and the flame burning inside it makes a spectacularly eerie sight. The candle is of moderate size but heavy.
  • The burn time is fairly decent!

The Downside

Due to the shape of the skull, the wick is not in the center but at the back side, so the backside of the candle would melt first. I would have loved if the wax would have oozed out of the eye, but the oozing from side works too.

3. Zellinni Spine Candle Spooky Halloween Candle

Description

What better way to complement your skull candle than with a spine shaped candle! It seems you have a skeleton with dismembered bones dancing in your closet.

My Personal Notes

  • If you love skeleton-themed décor than this unique spine-shaped pillar candle would tickle your horror fantasy.
  • This candle was available in white color too but it looks more academic and less horror. The black colored one looks spine-chilling real and very gothic.
  • The detailing is perfect, from the curve of the bone to the spinal cord protruding from the top.
  • While other goth and horror-themed candles focus more on looks than on scent, I was pleasantly surprised that the spine candle has a pleasant fragrance.
  • As it is a thick candle, it’s base is thick and stable, and you wouldn’t need a candle holder.

The Downside

None.

Height: 4.5″W x 6.7″H Burn Time: 25 Hours (approx.)  Ratings: 4.8 Stars  Reviews: 219

Description

This cleverly designed candle is something that would please any feline lover. The evil, gothic looking cat skeleton waiting to reveal itself makes the burn experience more enchanting.

My Personal Notes

  • This is an award-winning candle and one can see why! The geometric design of the candle is high on modern aesthetics.
  • Right from the packaging to the burn experience, the candle keeps your attention engaged. It’s like peeling away many layers of experience.
  • The shiny metallic skeleton, the best feature of this candle, would make you jump with delight.
  • The candle’s flame makes the eyes shine, heightening the effect. The cat doesn’t look that evil but this is one malicious looking skeleton.
  • My love for black cats has made me choose the black color, as it adds that instant touch of witchery suggestiveness to the candle.
  • It’s a medium sized candle and heavy too.
  • Decent burn time, though one cannot wait for the skeleton to make its appearance.
  • If you want to give a cat lover a great Halloween gift that is surefire to please, go for this one. I have gotten so many complements from the recipients.

The Downside

I bought it during a sale, so I didn’t feel the pinch. I would have loved to have a fragrance to enjoy but it’s missing. Otherwise, it’s an expensive candle, but with a justifiable range. There is a more cost-effective option available here but I prefer the Icelandic element, so I am going to stick with the PyroPet Candle.

Specifications

Size: 12 Oz4.5″W x 6.7″H Burn Time: 60 Hours (approx.)  Ratings: 4.4 Stars  Reviews: 11

Description

This spooky Halloween candle’s uniqueness owes to the factor that instead of the typical wax sculpturing, the clear glass jar has been cleverly fashioned like a skull.

My Personal Notes

  • The detailing on the glass has been intricate and thorough.
  • Although I love black skulls, but I preferred to get the white one in this fall decor.
  • This is a no mess or drip candle! The melted wax stays contained in the jar.
  • Unlike wax Halloween sculptures and spooky elements that eventually drip away, the jar is something permanent for you to keep and re-purpose.
  • Most of the spooky candle makers focus on the crafting and not so much on the fragrance. But I am glad that this candle has a lovely fall fragrance that is feels like pumpkin or apple spice.
  • This jar candle is the ideal fit for anyone who wants a macabre but understated Halloween décor item.

The Downside

None.

6. Spooky Bat Shaped Halloween Candle with Skeleton Inside

Specifications

Description

Not everyone is able to find their spook-ilicious thrill in cats. So, Gut’s bat candle is a great option for those who are into vampires and bats.

My Personal Notes

  • I wasn’t impressed with Gut’s take on PyroPet cat skeleton inside candle, but its bat candle is not only original but very well-made.
  • The detailing on this sculpture is intricate, from the ears to to the draped wings.
  • It’s not a geometric design but a realistic one, which adds to its crypticness. I could totally picture it guarding Bram Stocker Dracula’s tomb.
  • I am actually waiting to burn this one, so can’t say anything about the skeleton inside, but the friend who had a similar piece was thrilled with the experience overall.

The Downside

None so far.

Why use Halloween candles instead of LED Lights as a decor item?

Both Halloween candles and Halloween themed LED lights come in various kinds of shapes, colors candles as a décor item is an awesome way to prepare for the grand night of ghoulish fun and frights. But Halloween candles are a more traditional way of celebrating the occasion. Wax is the perfect medium to create some fright-fantastic decor items, the results are much more realistic and cryptic. Furthermore, candle light and the shadows it casts has an aura of mystery. So lighting candles around the house during your Halloween party would help you create a cryptic and eerie vibe effortlessly. You can easily find anything matching with your Halloween decor’s theme in stores.You can even make a spooky candle the focal point and spin a whole horror theme around it. Even if you are not entertaining and plan to be on your own on Halloween, these spooky Halloween candles are just perfect for setting the mood and chilling around at your den.

To Sum Up

The perfect Halloween decoration is what adds to the eeriness and delight of a space, whether you are hosting a Halloween party or are just by yourself. Spooky Halloween candles can sizzle up the décor through their brightness, warmth and creativity. Whether you are into skulls and bones, or ghosts, I hope you would like my selections. These don’t cost much and are great as gifts too. The Skeleton in Cauldron Halloween candle is my topmost pick because it is funny and creative and the ceramic cauldron and skeleton are recyclable. Same goes for the skull-shaped jar candle, it’s re-purposable and has a lovely autumn fragrance.
