Spooky season is almost here—which means it's officially time to start stocking our online carts with all the cute and cozy fall decor we can find. Whether you're on the hunt for pumpkin-hued accents to deck out your home or you're prepping your porch with Halloween garb, TikTok is one of the best places to find spooky decor trends. Lately, users have been obsessed with Harry Potter-inspired floating candles, which already have more than 151 million TikTok views. And best of all, we found plenty of floating candle options on Amazon so you can get the look in your own home.
Designed to hang from your ceiling from a clear thread, this candle decor gives the appearance of being magically suspended in the air. Simply attach the suction cups to your ceiling, add a AAA battery inside each candle, then hang them from the included hooks. Many versions, like JMTone's best-selling set on Amazon, even come with a wand-shaped remote so you can turn the "flame" on and off with a flick of the wrist, adding to the spooky effect.
Most of the floating candle sets we found on Amazon come with anywhere from 12 to 20 candles, making it easy to decorate a large area without buying multiple packs. You can also customize the length at which the candles hang to perfectly suit your preferences. Because they're suspended using suction cups rather than hooks or nails, they're easy to put up and take down without leaving permanent damage to your ceiling.
On social media, we've seen users display the floating candles above their fireplace, across the ceiling in their entryway, and even on their covered front porch, so there's no shortage of placement options.
As Halloween approaches, we expect that many of these wand and floating candles will sell out, so add them to your cart before these viral decor finds disappear.
