Long before the invention of the light bulb (thank you Thomas Edison) candles were a necessary creation. Despite the fact every house is equipped with plenty of light bulbs, electrical outlets, and cell phones with flashlight features, candles are still incredibly popular. Chances are you have a couple candles in your house right now.

Some people (myself included) can’t buy enough candles, there’s just something so special about them. For one, they smell really nice. They also provide a room with a cozy, romantic quality. Plus, with all of the different styles available on the market today, you can really dress up your home decor with candles.

If you are a candle lover you will adore this list of the most creative candle designs ever!

6. Light Bulb Candle

This candle pays tribute to the invention that could have made the candle obsolete. Thankfully, the world loves candles way too much to give them the boot!
