DIY Valentine Candle

Let me tell you, you will NEVER fail when gifting a good candle! (At least you wont fail me!) I have a pretty serious candle obsession and I would literally set a budget for my candle purchases every month. *don't judge me* So, I recently pinned a tutorial on pinterest that shows you how to easily make your own soy candles. This is ridiculously easy so no excuses if you're not the "crafty type". 

I assume you're here because you want an easy handmade gift for you valentine, so lets get started!

What you'll need:

  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Paint marker
  • Ribbon
  • A jar for your candle - I picked up this cute pink ceramic bucket trimmed in gold from the dollar isle at Target
  • Gift tag - also from the Target dollar isle
  • Soy wax - I order my soy wax from amazon. I've used several different brands, but the current one I'm using is from the CandleScience brand (Its available for prime shipping!)
  • Candle fragrance - Amazon CandleScience brand
  • Candle wick - Amazon CandleScience brand

First I added my wick. I used a hot glue gun to attach it in the center. You can also use melted wax, but this is a little easier

I melted my wax by heating it on my stove. I usually use a double boiler method but I was a little pressed for time so I placed it in a metal pouring container directly on the eye and it worked just fine. Heating in the microwave works fine also!

I stirred constantly until my wax was completely melted and was ready to pour

Once I poured my wax in along with a few generous drops of my "Jamaica Me Crazy" fragrance... it was time to let it set. The hard part is to not check it every 5 minutes :)

This particular bucket came with a plastic lid that I used to keep the wick center while the wax set. Just cut a hole in the center of the lid and pull the wick through.

I let the wax set over night. and trimmed the excess wick.

Lastly, I used my paint marker to add a sweet saying on my gift tag and Voila! Embellish with gift wrap and ribbon :)

You'll be sure to set the mood with this sweet smelling gift! Let me know if you decide to give it a try! 

Happy Valentine's Day!
