This example, looks like it was drilled out.
But, I do a trick all the time with my pillar candles, especially because I have hunted long/hard for a color that "just matches" and I dont really want to burn it away. The first time I burn the pillar, I let it burn long enough to be melted/pooled as wide and deep as a tea light. Then extinquish and pour out the melted wax. This leaves a tealight sized hole to insert cooridinating/contrasting tealights.
Hint for all (jar) candles: if you want to keep a candle level, you need to let it pool to the sides. The next time you burn a candle, it will only melt out as far as it did the time before. So, if you have blown out a candle too early, you will always have the premature ring, and so on. That's why people end up with a candle that only seems to burn down the middle. But then you can use them on the candle-warmers like a giant tart.
