Take a singing birthday card - disconnect the speaker and put an LED there in place of it.

The Led will flicker like a candle.

There are ways to do this with a microprocessor as well.

Any classic starter, with a suitable current rating would work, you just have to be careful with the lamps - this only works for filament bulbs. There are much better ways of doing it, if you can afford the time and effort
