When I come home after a long day, one of my favorite things to do is light a few candles. They instantly set the mood for relaxation and allow me to unwind. Although I would love to venture into the art of candle making from scratch, I wanted to a way to make my own candles quickly with little mess involved. Figuring out how to make a candle in less than five minutes was definitely a game changer – I now want to turn all of the containers into candles.
How to Make a Candle
What’ you’ll need
1. Select a heat-safe container. Be creative! Mugs, pots, dishes, and jars are all great choices that a little chic flair. Place a small dot of hot glue on the bottom of the container and add a wick stick.
2. Fill the container with granulated wax leaving a little room at the top. Granulated wax is super easy to work with, and it comes in a variety of colors.
3. Finally, light your candle and cozy up! Grab a blanket, a good book, and you’ll be set.
If you’d like to add fragrance to your candles, simply place the granulated wax and a few drops of liquid fragrance in a plastic bag and shake well.
