Scented with your favorite fragrance, these beeswax and soy candles are easy to make and great for all occasions! We will be cutting wine bottles and using the bottom section as a container for pouring our candles. Get started now and give these inexpensive, eco-friendly, handmade treasures as Christmas gifts that are sure to impress!
Beeswax or Soy Wax
Soy wicks on metal tabs
Double sided adhesive
Melting Pot and large sauce pan for boiling water
Cut wine bottles for candle containers (See How I Cut Wine Bottles)
Bamboo Skewer or pencil
Craft wire or rubberbands
Lint free cloth
Soap and water or glass cleaner
1. Melt wax per instructions. I used an aluminum melting pot placed in a large sauce pan of boiling water. Add scent if you are going to do that.
2. While that is melting, prepare container and wick. Clean container well and dry with a lint free cloth. Adhere wick tab to double sided adhesive, and stick other side into container.
- Wrap excess wick around dowel rod, centered so that wicks are straight up and down. Use wire or rubber band to attach a second dowel rod to the first, sandwiching the wick in place.
4. Pour in wax until container is as full as you would like. Let sit overnight, trim wicks and enjoy!
￮ Use printable labels to customize your candles for gifts and holidays. Etch monograms and patterns like I showed you in the Monogram Tumblers project!
