Scented Soy, Long-Burning Candles With Personalized Labels

1 Hour
Easy to make, affordable, and wonderful for gift-giving! Who could ask for more?!?! These candles took me an hour to make four from start to finish. Though, if I was making a larger batch, I could've easily made 15+ in an hour! Truly though, these candles are super easy and cheap to DIY and make wonderful gifts, or just add a yummy scent to your own home or office!
After the wax is starting to harden, place wicks into candles at the center of the jar. Wicks will set as wax hardens. You may need to stabilize the wick in location until the wax hardens.
Supplies needed to make your own version of my candles- soy wax, soy coated candle wicks, all natural oil scents, printable waterproof labels, and jars of your choosing! All supplies can be found on Amazon, or at a local craft store.
To keep it simple and because I was doing a small batch, I used a Pyrex glass container to melt my wax in timed increments in the microwave. For larger batches, a double boiler or crockpot may be used. Wax must not be overheated!!!
Using your home printer, create a design unique for your home or to use for gift giving, and print onto the printable waterproof labels. Then just trim the labels and place on jars! Easy peasy!
Now, you have beautiful, fun, holiday gifts and/or decor ready to fill a space with beautiful scents!
