~ 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. :)

Pretty candles Debi. I really like the one with the stones in it, looks like rocks you've collected from the lake? Great idea and it sounds easy enough. Thanks! :-)ReplyDelete
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 :)ReplyDelete
