Make candles yourself: make something very special out of old candle scraps


Candles are one of the most popular decorative elements in every home. They bring light and warmth in the colder days and contribute by their candlelight to a pleasant and atmospheric atmosphere. For all candle lovers today we decided to create this article. Here we show you in detail how to make fantastic candles yourself, with which you transform your apartment into a real well-being!

Making candles is very easy and is a great job that is undoubtedly worthwhile! You have the opportunity to design the DIY candles in desired colors and shapes and to decorate them to your liking and mood. Depending on your taste, you can also add essential oils with your favorite flavors, creating luxury scented candles that are relaxing and promoting harmony.

We start with instructions on how to make simple candles yourself. That is how it goes:

Equipment:

  • Candle wax or old candle scraps
  • Wick (you can also use 100% cotton thread or yarn)
  • cooking thermometer
  • Candlesticks of your choice (teacup, can, canning jars etc.)
  • Wooden sticks or straws
  • Two heat resistant vessels for water bath

First, make sure your candleholder is clean. Then take the wick, tie it to the wooden stick or straw and place it across the candlestick. Mince the wax or candles. If you use candle scraps, remove any impurities or wicking material. Now you should melt the wax or the remainder of the candles. Put it in one bowl and then place it in the other, which you have filled with warm water for the time being. Make sure the water does not reach more than 90 degrees to prevent the wax from burning. After completing these steps, you can pour the melted wax into the candle holder. Let it cool and that’s all. You already have a pretty DIY candle!

Equipment:

  • Candle wax or old candle scraps
  • wick
  • cooking thermometer
  • Candlestick of your choice
  • Wooden sticks or straw
  • Two heat-resistant vessels for the water bath
  • essential oil to taste (choose natural flavor oils, otherwise harmful substances may be released during combustion)

Tie the wick to the wooden stick or straw and place it across the candlestick. Mince the wax or the remainder of the candle and melt in a water bath. Now add a few drops of the essential oil in the hot wax and stir well. If you want, you can decorate the candlestick with petals, coffee beans, etc. That depends on the flavoring you have chosen. Pour the liquid wax into the candle holder and let the candle dry.

Also different fragrance combinations are possible here. In this case, add a few drops of the two essential oils to the melted wax.

For the production of gel candles you need a special candle gel. This can be easily found in the shops. Make sure that this gel melts at a temperature of 80-95 degrees.

Equipment:

  • Kerzengel
  • wick
  • cooking thermometer
  • Candlestick of your choice
  • Wooden sticks or straw
  • Wax color (possibly)
  • Two heat-resistant vessels for the water bath
  • Decorative items that are not flammable (shell, stones, etc.)

Tie the wick to the wooden stick or straw and place it across the candlestick. Melt the candle gel in a water bath. Depending on your taste, you can now also add the wax color. Add a few drops and stir well until you reach the desired color. Decorate the candlestick with the decorative items and pour the liquid gel into it. Wait for the candle to dry.
