How many times have you gone to an oh-so-cute gift shop and found a really cool candle that would be the perfect gift for someone, only to find out it costs how much? We’ve all been there. It took me a long time to take the plunge to finally try my hand at candle making for the first time. Honestly, now that I can whip out a lovely, bespoke candle without hassle, I’m kicking myself for not learning how to do this years ago. Here’s a video outlining my go-to candle making process:
See? Super duper easy. Don’t hesitate to holler in the comments if you have any questions!
What an awesome video, Heidi! I love your animated intro title. And this is such a great how-to for candle-making. That wick/straw trick rocked my world – hadn’t ever seen that before. Bravo! I look forward to lots more videos in future!
Thanks, Diane! It took me awhile to get back to making videos, but your and my other readers’ encouragement helped give me the boost I needed to get back into it. Thank you!
Yay! I just made my first candle recently myself. Yours are adorable! Pinned.
Great thinking on the straw trick.
Hint – old crayons work great for coloring candles
