How to Make Glitter Jar and Tealight Candles

How to Make Glitter Jar and Tealight Candles

From the blogger: "Do you spend hundreds and hundreds on scented candles each year? Have you ever considered making your own? Come....let's see how to get started with making your own candles at home. Don't get intimidated thinking candle-making would be a messy or a very scientific chemical process which would need to put your thinking cap on. Trust me, when I wanted to try my hand at candlemaking, even I was very skeptical about the process. But, it's just easy to get started with making your own candles. You just need a few simple ingredients.

"These handmade candles would also make a thoughtful gift or a party favor during any season. The most wonderful part about making homemade candles is that you can use any variety of inexpensive Mason jars, small glasses, food jars, tea cups, coffee cups, or any little metal containers. You can get creative and customize these candles using various fragrant oils of your liking. Here I've also used glitter to just give that sparkling environment.

"Dealing with wax sometimes becomes a rather messy thing, especially as it melts, droplets can get anywhere and everywhere, and you won’t even know it until the wax dries. To avoid this, use newspaper or paper towels around your work area. And if by chance even if some of those droplets do get on your work space.....don't worry, cleaning wax isn’t that hard. Wipe it off immediately or if you haven't noticed that the wax has fallen, even that would be easy to clean. Just scrape it off with a knife or use your fingernail. Keep your materials ready at hand. Once you start melting the wax, there would be hardly any time left before it starts hardening. So let's start.......!!!!!!"
