Candle Making Projects: 3 Easy Creative Candle Making Ideas

By Rebecca Keating

When you’ve done the basic melt – pour – unmold process, you might want to get up close and personal with your candle. Change the look of your candle by impressing your unique candle making ideas with your own hands. Here are instructions to 3 easy projects.

Dried flowers and leaves can dress up any candle. Leaf skeletons are easy to find, easy to apply and give an exquisitely delicate, lacy look. You can get leaf skeletons at craft stores. Arrange them on paper of the same color, cut to the size and circumference of the candle you will be decorating. Place the leaves on the candle with a small amount of white glue to keep them in place. Wait at least an hour for the glue to dry (it will be transparent). You may either paint it over with a small paint brush dipped in melted wax or dip it in a pot of melted wax to protect the leaves.

You can have your java and sniff it too by making coffee scented candles in clear coffee mugs. For an added kick, make a pillar candle with coffee scented candle making fragrance oil; reserve some of the wax. Place your finished pillar candle in a mold of the same height but slightly wider, just enough for you to fill with a layer of coffee beans. Re-melt the reserved wax and pour over the coffee bean-filled gap. Poke the space with a barbecue stick or tap the mold with the flat side of a spoon to get rid of air bubbles. When cool and hardened, unmold your candle for a caffeine fix.

Tissue wrapping paper that came from a special gift can be wrapped flat around a candle and pinned to stay in place. Use a heat gun or a blower set on high to make the candle tacky enough to affix the tissue paper. Remove the pin/s. The candle can then be dipped in melted wax for a protective covering. Use a wide circumference candle to avoid setting the paper on fire.

In a pinch, you can use store bought candles for these quick and easy candle making at home project or ramp up plain looking candles, and have a whole new line of products to offer. Now tell me that wasn’t easy.
