I see you’re from Canada. Do you have a “Things Engraved” or “Personally Yours”? They can probably etch it into the glass for you!

You could also print and frame the saying and place it next to the candle. Just an idea.

We are doing vellum paper wrapped around the candles for our memorial table, that could be an option too!

I made my own memorial candles. Printed on vellum paper and wrapped around a glass vase for each person. Put the poem in a frame on the table.

I bought clear cylinder vases from the dollar store and vellum paper from the craft store. I made up my own word template with the name, year of birth/death and added a picture in the center. Printed it out grayscale (make sure the print settings are for transparent paper). Trimmed down the edges of the paper to fit the height of the vase and taped it on. Inside I put a battery operated tea light for the candle effect. Cost about $2.50 each annd made a nice keepsake, the guests were really touched by it.

I bought mine off of Etsy. They are the vellum that other posters are talking about. I stuck them on some glass vases I got at a glass outlet and put LED tea lights in them. I’m sure someone on Etsy could custom do them. They don’t seem like they would be too hard to make on your own either.
