To celebrate this festive season, we created these cheerful, sleepy animal festive candles, that will bring a cosy, joyful vibe into your homes. They are made by transferring our hand-drawn creatures and branches using heat.
It is a wonderful gift for a friend or family member to share some festive joy with, in time for them to decorate their homes with a little reminder of your love before Christmas. They are minimal but still bring a sense of cosiness and a feeling of home into any room.
Lovely sleepy woodland creatures curled warmly between garlands and branches. This is a thoughtful gift for a loved one to remind them of that warm, comforting love you share between you, and a gentle decoration to bring some festive cheer into their rooms.
Are they sleeping or hibernating? Did you know that out of the three only hedgehogs and certain mice species hibernate, whilst squirrels don’t?
‘Hedgehogs usually hibernate from October/November through to March/April. Research has shown that each individual is likely to move nesting sites at least once during this period and so can sometimes be seen out and about. During mild winters hedgehogs can remain active well into November and December.’
If you want to read more about hedgehogs and our source, you can read this page HERE.
Whereas squirrels and some mice species don’t hibernate but go into a torpid state where their metabolism slows down and body temperature decreases. So they are less active during the colder weeks/months, prioritising finding a warm nook and looking for food when awake.
For mice, it depends on the species. A wood mouse will enter a state of inactivity, but a hazel dormouse will hibernate.
If you want to learn more about the behaviour of squirrels check HERE. If you’re curious about what mice species hibernate and which don’t, we recommend searching them up on the Wildlife Trust website. We have referenced our information from both.
The template of each image of this festive candle is designed and hand-drawn by us and then printed.

This is an unscented, indoor candle.
This festive candle is approximately 12-14cm high, 11cm in diameter and weighs 1-1,2kg.
