Fall Leaf Candle Holder and Fall Candle Tutorial

Learn how to make an easy but beautiful fall leaf candle holder. This also has directions for a soy, beeswax, and coconut oil fall candle made with essential oils.

This fall candle is so pretty, but it's very easy to make. You can turn any candle in a glass jar into a fall leaf candle, and you don't have to make the candle. I made my candle with a fall essential oil blend.

To make the candle and the candle holder, you will need:

  • 6 ounces soy wax
  • 6 tablespoons beeswax
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 160 drops sweet orange essential oil
  • 40 drops coffee essential oil
  • 40 drops cinnamon leaf essential oil
  • Mason jar (use a jar with smooth sides)
  • Wick (I recommend using a size 6)
  • Mod Podge or hot glue

Start by attaching the fall leaves to the jar. I tried to use Mod Podge, but my leaves were thick and didn't want to stick. I used a small dot of hot glue on the edges of the leaves. Then I used a pencil to press them down. Keep adding leaves around the jar until you're happy with how it looks.

Then use a double boiler to melt the soy wax, beeswax, and coconut oil. Remove from heat and let cool. Then add the essential oils and stir well for 1 minute.

Dip the wick into the wax and place it in the bottom of the jar. Let it sit for a minute to harden the wax. Then carefully pour the hot wax into the jar. Mine overfilled a little, so I poured leftovers into soufflé cups and will use them as wax melts.

The candle won't get hot enough to melt the hot glue if you used a high temp glue. You can place the candle on a small plate if you'd like. Be sure to click over to the original blog post for more information and where to get supplies.
