Candle Packaging

Candle Packaging

Candles are an amazing accent any time of the year. Their warmth, scents, and candle packaging can all help to tie together a room or even act as the perfect present for a friend or loved one. These innovative, fun, and creative candle packaging designs utilized different materials, textures, and colors to create different experiences with each candle. Check out these unique candle packaging ideas.

Brick X Brick

Brick X Brick, or “Brick by Brick,” works as an eco-friendly company that combines the old with the new. The company has ideas to use bricks from condemned or demolished homes and businesses to create a dual holder for a succulent and a candle. As you can imagine, the brick is quite heavy, which means that the candle packaging is very durable. The brick comes in a sturdy cardboard box emblazoned with “All Proceeds to Our Community” written right across the top. Inside, the candles and brick are wrapped in recyclable tissue paper and secured with twine. An easy set-up, simply unwrap all components and you have your completed home accent!


Francfranc is the brainchild of designer Kylie Lee and draws inspiration from Parisian and European cities to help create some amazingly artistic candle packaging designs. The theme of this brand is “Life is Imagination,” which is clearly reflected in the candle packaging. Housed in a small silver tin, the real magic is within the tin. When the tin is opened, a tiny wooden fixture can be placed atop the wax; the wooden fixture is a hand-designed carving of a European culture. The Leaning Tower of Pisa, a gelato shop, and the Eiffel Tower are just a few of the beautifully carved designs that are available. When the candle is light, the light flickers through the carvings, reflecting the buildings onto the wall or table nearest the candle.

Black Arrow

Black Arrow candle packaging is for the nature lover. The natural simplicity of the packaging is apparent from first glance, and the packaging and the candle deliver on all fronts. The box itself is made from cardboard, but uses imaging of white-brown wood to create a calming and natural candle packaging experience. The label is simple as well, contributing to a modern and clean candle packaging look. The candles themselves are equally as simple and beautiful, a clean white vase with the Black Arrow logo the only mark.


EMBER’s candle packaging and concept is unique and innovative in all aspects. The candle packaging offers two colors: white or black. Each candle holder is a unique rectangular shape, as opposed to the usual circular candle look. The pots are ceramic and also show delicate sketches of flowers and other abstract drawings to create a welcoming design. The thought behind EMBER is to add essential oils to the ceramic pot around the flame, and then, after the flame has warmed the oil, snuff the flame and drizzle the oil over your skin to create a relaxing experience.
