not sure how those bulbs will look, might be just a bright spot like the old incan bulbs had... we used PVC pipe to make stands and ran a string of 60 LEDs around the pipe the length of the blow mold candles we have.

I started using  floresent bulbs in my blowmolds.  Really makes them pop.

@Jeffery m  Here are a couple of pics of the frame I made for our candles:

My wife ziptied most of the bulbs to one side since the candles are only viewable from one direction in our display.

She also bunched up a few bulbs to put a bit more light into the flame part of the candle.

I did have to make the hole in the candle larger to fit the pipe and bulbs through.

how did you mount the candle over the pipe and keep it standing straight up ? Did you screw the base of it to the pvc

They aren't mounted to the PVC at all, just sitting there... You could use a couple of small L brackets and small screws. We do anchor the PVC to the ground with some stakes.
