Here are my white PVC candles. First of 40 to roll out. Used PVC (of course), white glue sticks, pink styro (for inside the PVC tube), Dollar Tree LED tea lights (2 for a dollar), and my variable temp glue gun.....

PVC candles

They look great...just like mine. I made about 50 of them, with diff. lengths, but I don't think I'm going to use them...I wish I would have made them with a more opaque color so the light can shine through the sides. I, like you, spend a lot of time on them.

Great looking candles. Sooooo, how many hot glue burns do you have. By the look of them your using about one stik of glue per candle.(the big sticks)

Think I answered your question already jaege, but just in case, they are one and two inch PVC, foam inserts support the battery operated flicker tea light, finished with white glue sticks so no painting of the final product. The PVC is painted with a plastic safe white spray paint to cover over any printing and smooth the finish prior to glue.
