You Ruined Christmas Candle

$ 13.00


Named after a friend who ruined her family’s Christmas three years in a row, this candle can really get you in—or out of—the holiday spirit. It smells just like a Christmas tree and makes THE PERFECT stocking stuffer or white elephant gift. This candle smells for months if left unlit in a room.

The details:
Smells like a frasier fir Christmas tree
Color: Red
Soy Wax
Phthalate Free
8-10 hour burn time
4.5 oz (2.75” wide x 2.125” deep x 1.875” tall)
*After trimming the wick to ¼ inch, we suggest burning the candle for one hour at a time. This will avoid melting through the walls and spilling all the wax. Your dumpster fire will have a longer life! ALWAYS burn on a level, fire resistant surface.

Each candle is meticulously hand-poured and packaged in Raleigh, NC. Because of the homemade nature of the candle, there may be some slight imperfections.



Desperate to turn the corner and find some light, one evening the idea to create a literal dumpster fire popped into my brain. It’s an image that is devastating and funny at the same time, but it seemed dangerous and illegal to blaze a real dumpster. The challenge: how can I scale this down and make it accessible without compromising the metaphor of a burning dumpster? Thus, a candle in the shape of a dumpster was born.

My hope is that Dumpster Fire Candle makes people smirk. It represents redemption, letting go or just some good old fashioned hatred. Burn, baby, burn.
