Today I'm sharing with you a fun little DIY project. I've always wanted to try my hand at making candles because frankly, it gets expensive to constantly be purchasing new ones. I love to burn mine, even just during the day when I'm puttering around the house. My favorites are scented ones of warm and cozy scents like cookie dough, cinnamon, apples, and vanilla. The great thing about making your own is you can control the amount of scent which goes in it. I like a lot, but I know some people feel like less is more. Either way, making your own is a simple and economical DIY.
I chose an apple pie scent for the one I'm going to show you today. I really wish this was smellavision, because friends, this candle smells glorious!
To begin, you need to purchase a few items up front. These will just make the process easier. Once you have your basic candle making items, you will be able to make as many candles as you like, so the upfront cost is worth it.
Ball Mason Jars (or another vessel even upcycle old jars for this project)
I love the finished product. It smells wonderful and it looks fantastic in my kitchen with the Mason Jar as the container. The scent screams fall! I will definitely be making more now that I have all the supplies. Oh, the possibilities!!
Looking for another fun project with Mason Jars? I love painting them with chalk paint and using them as vases. You can see the full tutorial on chalk paint mason jars HERE.
To life feeling like home!
