General Information

Designed to fit 2" diameter pillar candles, this stand uses MDF ribs to create a colorful wall structure. As the candle runs low the light flickering through will change. A runny candle will create a nice effect as it starts to fill in between the ribs.

Fit and Finish

The wall sections may require light sanding for a proper fit. You want these to fit, but be tight enough to stay in place without glue.
