These creepy candles look like they’re crying while burning

Giving candles as gifts can be a bit of a snoozefest, let’s be honest. But we’ve found a new kind of candle that blows all your soy wax designs out of the water. Because these candles cry!

The Jacks candles are part of a brilliant Kickstarter campaign that creates cool ceramic candle holders in the shape of skulls – human or animal. Candles then fit perfectly inside these skulls and as the candles burn, the hot wax drips through the ‘eyes’ of the candle holders, making it appear as though you have a crying candle staring at you. It’s freaky but genius!

Right now the campaign has a few more days to go and while early bird specials are all gone, pledges of $28 and more will get you your very own crying candle.
