MAKE YOUR OWN CANDLES
Who doesn't like a good DIY? Especially while spending most of your time at home- we all need things to do! Even if with life going back to normal- you know you're still hiding out a little.
These kits also make great gifts for the crafty person in your life.
In this DIY kit, you make one large candle. The bag contains all of the necessary ingredients to make the candle, and is user friendly for even a first-time candle maker. I include detailed, step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process. It even includes sticker to add that finishing touch to your candle.
• one large candle jar with lid
• one bag of pure soy wax flakes
• one 1 oz bottle of the oil of your choice
• two wicks + two wick stickers
• one wooden stir stick
• sheet of candle-making instructions
Pour it up!
✼ 16 ounces - 80+ hours
Look how good I am:
✼ 100% soy wax made in the US
✼ recyclable glass jar
✼ 100% cotton wick
✼ non-toxic oils
✼ phthalate free
✼ hand-poured with an attitude problem (you have an attitude, too- right?)
Are you going to take care of me or what?
✼ keep your wicks trimmed to 1/4" (cut off that little soot mushroom)
✼ make sure to melt the entire surface to get an even burn
✼ no one wants the fire department to show up, so please be careful
✼ AGAIN FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK: keep your wicks trimmed
Some stuff to keep in mind:
✼ soy wax can be high maintenance (just like the rest of us)
✼ each lot of wax holds dye differently so colors may vary a bit
✼ does your candle look frosty? nothing is wrong. soy wax does that sometimes, and it won't affect the burn whatsoever
Cleaning your jars post-sass:
✼ DO NOT MICROWAVE to remove excess wax (contains metal wick tabs)
✼ warm a little water in a pot on low to liquify remaining wax + dump it out
✼ take a spoon and pop metal wick tabs off of the bottom
✼ dish soap and warm water will clean it right out
✼ dumping melted wax down the drain is not recommended. leave your plumber out of this.
Recycle Your Jars:
✼ organizing crafty things
✼ layer different materials to plant succulents
✼ eat something out of it (after you wash it)
✼ cotton balls, q-tips, chapstick, maybe nightstand snacks
✼ drink water out of it- we all know you probably need more water
