MAKE IT CUTE
We're obsessing over this rad soy candle DIY
- 1 lb of soy wax flakes
- 1 box of wax colorant
- 1 bag of beads
- Candle pouring pot
- 7 wicks and wick stickums (popsicle sticks work, too)
- 7 wick holder sticks
- A wooden spoon
- 7oz of scented oil (1oz per candle) *optional*
- 7 pint sized mason jars
*All these items can be purchased at your local craft store
What you’ll do:
Step 1: Wipe the inside of all the mason jars and set them to the side.
Step 2: Grab your wick and smooth it out. Then take the stickum and apply it to the bottom of your wick.
Step 3: Stick the wick in the center of the mason jar as best you can and secure with the wick holders.
Step 4: In a pot over low heat, melt your wax, stirring continuously.
NOTE: Do not let the wax boil.
Step 5: Add your scent and color of choice and slowly stir them into your wax. To get your candles smelling right, add 1oz of fragrance to 1 pound of wax.
Step 6: Take your candle mix off the heat and let cool for 30 min (the consistency should look like a slurpee)
Step 7: Pour the mixture into your mason jars and let sit for 24 hours.
Step 8: Trim the wicks to ½ inch and you've got yourself homemade candles!
