Votive Candles

Votive Candles

A Votive candle, also known as a prayer candle, has its origins inside altars and churches. Votive candles are typically rounded and small measuring around 2 inches tall by 1.5 inch in diameter. When lit, votive candles that are grouped together make an attractive and enchanting feature to look at.

If you don't want your home to look like a votive candle rack like those seen in churches, you could arrange the votive candles into attractive shapes like stars and hearts to give it more punch and interest.
