Everyday Metal Flat Sentiment Illuma-Lid® Jar Candle Topper
Great concept for MEDIUM tumbler candles, NOT large tumblers
I purchased this and a couple of others. Kitties and the Football toppers. Much to my surprise, on the large tumbler for which I had intended on using as stated by description of product can be used large and medium tumblers. These toppers are NOT accessible to be used with the large tumbler candles. I attempted to use on a large tumbler that I purchased with these toppers and the topper falls and lays right on the wax, NOT on the top of the jar as it should and as Yankee Candles description states it should as I have copy pasted here specifically from YC's website. I quote "Designed to fit our large and medium jar candles."
I am disappointed in this discovery because I wanted to use them on my new candles I purchased with these toppers and I cannot. These toppers only fit the medium tumblers and maybe the small. (I cannot say for sure the small whereas I do not have small jar tumblers to test.)
Otherwise, these toppers do work as advertised on MEDIUM (12oz.) candle tumblers!
If anyone has suggestions as to which topper best fits the large tumbler, I am open to suggestions. I have tried the shade design and the shades I have purchased in the past, have since been tossed. All they do is sit on top of the jar as they should, like a shade, moments after lighting the candle, the candle is snuffed out. Not enough of an opening for the shade and for the candle to breath to remain lit.
JMO...Yankee Candle should change their description of the toppers to fit ONLY medium (12 oz.) tumblers. Anything bigger than that, buyer beware if you intend to buy these and have them fit on the top of a LARGE jarred tumbler.
Thank you for reading.

All about the positivity!
Love this lid. It does its job in making the candle burn evenly but I love the positive sentiments of Live, Love, Laugh. So important to always remember to do those three things! :)

Love this lid!
I have had this lid for about a year now and I love it. It helps melt the wax evenly. Love Yankee Candle, there the only candles I burn. Buttercream is for sure on TOP!

this was my very first lid ever bought. I was happy with it, and its a great saying and pretty lid. However, since my collection has grown I have noticed this isnt really helpful for tunneling, I normally switch out my lids depending on which has the best wax pool, that way my "stronger lids" and my lids like this one... get rotated out so each candle will have a nice pool. I burn prob. about 4 to 5 candles at one time (one in each main room of the house) I dont think this lid really does much when it comes to tunneling. I put this one after the wax pool is pretty thick.
