I was wondering if anyone knew where to get glass star shaped containers for candles.

I am wanting to make some candles that the wax is poured into a star shaped container.

If you know of anything please let me know!

I looking to make 100+ candles poured into a star shape with silver glitter in them for a wedding!

I'm guessing that you mean star shaped pillar candles. Don't know if this will help you much, but if you absolutely must have star shapes the height of a typical pillar and can't seem to find a mold, I suggest making triangle shaped ones and either leave the center hollow and drop a tea light or votive candle in the middle. OR make 5 triangle candles and put them around around a round center pillar candle filling the empty spaces with hot liquid wax. I have several soy candles in the shape of a triangle, they are in glass containers.

If all else fails with candle molds, I would recommend that you buy several sheets of bee's wax and cut out star shapes, perhaps with a cookie cutter, and using an ice pick, poke a hole in the center of each one, thread them together on a candle wick. Droping a few drops of melted bee's wax between the layers to "glue" them together. Volia! Star shaped candles. Wait until cured, then add your silver glitter. Don't forget a dish to put them on, round or square would work.

Good luck! I'm sure that the couple will appreciate all your efforts.

If the holders were empty so I can pour that'd be great so far, I am not finding any of these in the #1 URL you posted.

If you are ok with the empty holder you could see if you can find them at a doller store and see if you can order the amount you need.
