3 Cool DIY Candle Ideas

Making candles is extremely easy. You can buy the wax premade, or you can combine the ingredients and create your own scent. The fun part comes when you get to decide which container you want to use to make your candle creation unique. Pro tip: some of the best containers can be found in thrift shops, so always keep an eye out for these funky candle holders!

Mason Jar Candles

The mason jars are always a good go-to. You can get them virtually anywhere and are often recycled, which means they can often be found for free. To decorate these up a bit you can use pressed flowers placed on the inside of the jar and some twine on the outside to give it a more rustic look. These candles will fit in with almost any décor which makes them great gifts as well!

Seashell Candles

If you are one of those people who likes to collect shells but never knows what to do with them, consider turning them into candles! An oyster shell or any other one that can sit face up and is deep enough can easily be turned into a candle. They won’t burn for that long because they are quite shallow, but if you are looking for a nice nautical theme then you cannot go wrong with a nautilus!

Teacup Candles

 Teacups are pretty easy to obtain, and you can get them quite inexpensively. They look adorable on a table set for lunch or dessert. When choosing what scent to use, maybe choose something that matches the cup in terms of the flowers.
