In recent years, candle design has taken a creative turn. Designers have gone a different route by combining elements of sculpture that interact with the melting wax. From hatching dinosaurs to surprise animal skeletons, the possibilities for fun seem endless. The latest in these playful novelty candles is seemingly ripped from the cover of a Lisa Frank trapper keeper. Online purveyor Firebox is now selling a sad unicorn candle that cries.
SAD UNICORN CANDLE CRIES
Crying Unicorn Candle features the mythical creature in the “purest white ceramic” holding a vibrant candle horn. As the taper burns and the wax melts, the liquid dramatically drips through the hollow eyes of the unicorn, just like brilliantly psychedelic tears. And as if once isn’t enough for a crying spell, the candle includes two more spiraled horns for the ultimate in beautiful sadness.
