Let’s shed some light on this unique idea: DIY candles. This project is fun, affordable, and a great way to make your loved ones glow with excitement!
Hello, my dear friends! It’s time for me to write another blog post and can I just say that I’m super excited. You may be wondering why so let me get right to the chase and explain. Wedding planning has been bliss lately and every day, as my wedding day draws nearer, I get more and more excited. You can definitely say I’m on the upswing of life and I never plan to come down from this giddy feeling E V E R!
Lately, and well ever since I’ve learned how to light a candle, I’ve adored them. I love the warmth, ambiance, and scent they give off. Light a few candles in a dark room and immediately you’ll have a cozy and ethereal feel. One of my roommates’ old roommates made homemade candles. I’ve always been aware of this DIY but I’ve never given it a try. This year, my creative muscles have been flexing a ton. So, I’m happy to say that today at Hobby Lobby, I found myself wandering into the DIY candle making section.

The fun thing about making your own candles is that you can do all sorts of things when making a candle. You can change the color of the wax, mix up the scents, ombre up your candles, add glitter, or change up the container. You name it! All kinds of things can be done with candle making!
Before we check out different candle making ideas you can use to DIY candles, let’s check out this video on how to make homemade candles! Yay! Now that we know how to make candles, let’s check out a few candle ideas. Shall we?
Alright folks, let’s set the record straight. There is nothing (I repeat, NOTHING) that is boring about mason jars! They are simple, but look lovely in most home living spaces. Imagine a simple, country cottage living room with these homemade candles lined up on the fireplace mantel along with a pretty eucalyptus garland. A pretty thought, right?

I love how feminine and chic this candle idea looks. I think the combination of the light blue with the soft pink petals looks very ethereal and ballerina-like. Am I the only one seeing this or do you see it too? Plus, the colors of this DIY are totally up-to-date with Pantone’s colors of the year: Serenity and Rose Quartz!
Who doesn’t love birthday cake and cupcakes? This cupcake scented DIY candle with sprinkles is the perfect gift to give someone who loves the scent of freshly baked goods! This candle is so fun and colorful and would definitely be a treat for anybody! I LOVE this idea a ton because I love the smell of freshly baked cakes.
Peppermint is one of my favorite scents because of how invigorating and refreshing it is. For a Christmas-y feel, you can definitely do something like this candle. However, since Christmas has already passed, this idea can easily be changed up with different decorations. Imagine decorating your candle with a pretty blue velvet bow with a dainty silver or gold bell. Or maybe wrapping it with beige twine and a pretty pink rose.
