Pillar candles are sturdy and thick. They can be short or tall and square or round. Some pillar candles are huge and contain multiple wicks. These candles are usually referred to by their diameter and height. Pillar candles can burn just fine without a holder and also are long-burning and smokeless. On average, an inch of the candle will take about an hour to burn. They come in all different sizes and with one, two or even three wicks! These larger standalone candles can help create an even more inviting atmosphere in any room of your home. Just be sure to put them on a flat, heat-resistant surface and keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t fall over. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different types of candles to get the best results. With the right candles in place, your next dinner party or get-together is certain to be a hit!
