** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

~ candles ~


I made these candles this morning - they're very quick and easy to do. 

All you need to create a nice gift for someone is the following:


The candle gel, candle scents, and wicks (if preferred) can be purchased from your local craft store.  I bought this candle gel from QVC years ago.  (For my Jewish friends - I mean no disrespect by using Chanukah candles).  Plus you'll need glass mugs and small heat resistent items - such as glass gems and small stones.  Those 3 items can be purchased from your local Dollar Tree.  (Sorry - I forgot to add those to the picture).

Fill your glass mug with the glass gems or the stones, insert one of the Chanukah candles (or a regular wick you bought from the craft store) in the middle, follow the directions for heating the candle gel, add the scent and then pour the liquid into the glass mug.  Let it cool and there you have it - a pretty candle. 

I have to warn you that making these candles is addicting.  My next purchase from the Dollar Tree will include more glass mugs.  :)

  5. Goodwill is a really good place to buy unique and different glasses and mugs, usually at a really good price. I make candles too and have found some really neat older mugs and glasses at Goodwill. Even one of a kind pretty tea cups make cute candles :)

    Rita - that's my dog Tex - he was standing at the door looking at me the whole time but when I went to take the picture he decided to walk away.
