Corn of a Different Color.

It's corn. It's a candle. No wait, it's a Corndle! Made from special, lifelike molds, these cob-shaped candles add color and light to your tablescape and make the perfect autumnal ornaments for your home year round. Each piece is hand "plugged" with vibrant kernels in every color of the rainbow, to replicate the fun pop of color present in real Indian Corn. These quirky candles are hand wrapped in authentic cornhusks and finished with a raffia bow. Fits a standard candle holder. Handmade in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Creating mood lighting with these paraffin wax candles is anything but corny. We love the bold colors, fun shape, and natural corn husk wrapping. Would you love a set of two in red, yellow, or blue corn?

Corny. HA!

Vote: Thumbs up!

Haha, I LOVE them!!!

I'm so confused. What the heck are these for? I can't imagine where or when I'd use a "corndle".

Vote: Thumbs down!

I've seen corn shaped candles before. These aren't all that different.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Just not my style. Not a country person.

Vote: Thumbs up!

These would be cute as a Fall or Thanksgiving centerpiece!

I don't think this looks like the real colored indian corn. Just not my style.

Vote: Thumbs up!

too much asking price

Vote: Thumbs down!

Wouldn't the raffia catch on fire? Seems dangerous.

Vote: Thumbs down!

The colors aren't very realistic and $24?!

Vote: Thumbs down!

Too country looking. Not your style

Thanks for the question, Kate. The husk and raffia must be removed before burning the candle. They're just for decoration while the pieces are on display.

Vote: Thumbs down!

The price is just a little too high - love that they are made in USA, pretty cute, but that they are over $20 put me off immediately.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Haha I love quirky! Great fall decor for people who take interior design more seriously. Personally I would just set them up in my kitchen for some added whimsy.(p.s. - I like them better at a slightly lower price)

Vote: Thumbs down!

I saw this and just stopped, but not in a good way. I'm glad to see a made in america item but they look kind of cheap and I would never put these in my home. the price is the only good thing about them but even then $24 for two candles I don't even like is just not doing it.

Vote: Thumbs up!

A fun silly product I come to Uncommon Goods looking for.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Not sure about the raffia, but I love the idea. These would be fun for a fall centerpiece or party decoration.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I've seen similar products elsewhere minus the husks but seems too pricey for candles.

Vote: Thumbs up!

These would look nice on a Thanksgiving table.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Thanksgiving... that's all I see.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Ugh.. So cheap looking and ugly.. Sorry, but not for me..

Vote: Thumbs down!

candles that have things wrapped around them often burn very irregularly and can cause large flaming bits to fall off.

Vote: Thumbs up!

My Mom has a set like this that she bought years ago. I think we've only burned them a few times so she can still pull them out at Thanksgiving every year.
