Throwback: Candle Chandeliers

This is probably one of the best uses of candles in a stage design that I’ve ever seen. These huge candle chandeliers hung above the church stage combined with 300+ candles to create this wonderful Christmas set piece.

Each level in these candle chandeliers were made of 4X8 sheets of 3/4” medium-density fibreboard. The diameter of the largest level was 8 feet. Each level was composed of 4 half circles with the seams offset then glued and screwed together. L-shaped screw hooks were screwed in between the sheets and connected to ropes for hanging.

  1. I'm not sure this is what they did…but some of the more expensive candles will keep from wax falling on the ground. We've had the same problem with ACs and wax falling all over…but when we bought more expensive candles that were made not to expel wax, we didn't have the problem as badly. (Of course you have the occasional candle acting up.)

  2. use battery operated candles for the chandeliers! thats what we did- the set came out incredible!

  3. Do you remember the depth of each of the circles? Were they all the same depth?
