Candle Carousel

Science and art in one magical candle accessory...The Candle Carousel! The concept is the same as that of Christmas pyramids which originated from Germany and are usually made of wood and hold taper candles. When the hot air from the candle rises, it hits the rotary blade of the carousel and tries to "push it out of the way" and makes the ornaments move in a clock-wise direction. 

It was suggested that Christmas pyramids were a predecessor to the Christmas Tree but that these pyramids were not limited to Christmas time. In fact, during Summer solstice, there was a custom of dancing around "St. John's Tree" decked with garlands and flowers. 

Today, these pyramids (aka spinning candle carousels or candle spinners) come in different shapes and materials. At Green Papaya, we have chosen to work with less "flammable" materials, like steel/aluminum and glass, and designs that can fit different candle sizes from tea lights to large container candles. Start your own family tradition now.

Our carousel comes in 3 sizes (small, medium and large) based on the carousel base. The ornaments are interchangeable and they come with a pretty "ready to gift" box.

Dimensions after assembly (approximate):

  • Small carousel: 5.5 inches x 3.5 inches x 3 inches
  • Medium carousel: 3.15 inches x 3.15 inches x 6.5 inches
  • Large carousel: Base = 9 inches x 4 inches, Height = 7.9 inches
