Lavender

If you like fragrant herbs, you simply must try this. Add some lavender and enjoy a wonderful scented candle. Make sure you use the correct size wick for your jar! If you don’t your candle won’t burn properly. Be sure to ask someone when you are buying the wick to advise you on the correct size.

Poured mason jar candle

For this project we won’t be needing that inner seal part of the mason jar lid, so you can remove it. Wipe out the inside of your jars to make sure you have a clean surface to pour your candle wax into. These pint sized mason jars (5″ tall by 3″ wide) take almost a full pound of wax flakes each.

Beeswax Candles in a Jar

Learning how to make your own candles not only saves you some cash, it allows you to know exactly what you are burning in your home. Instead of chemical-filled candles, these Beeswax Candles in a Jar are all natural and smell fantastic.


Paint the interior of your closet

Yes, your closet deserves some attention too! Paint the interior of a closet a fun color for a nice surprise when you open it up.

Gold, Silver or Copper Accessories

Use more gold/copper/brass/silver colours in the accessories to decorate your home! You can even change the hardware of your traditional or modern furniture to add an extra spark to your room!

Add Woodwork

Many older homes, from Victorian mansions to Craftsman bungalows, feature eye-catching woodwork. Their crown molding, chair rails, wainscoting, and carved newel posts all add visual interest to a room.

Tips on how to make your first
handmade candle


01. Prepare the Work Area

Dealing with wax is a rather messy affair. Especially as it melts, droplets can get anywhere and everywhere, and you won’t even know it until the wax dries. Set up newspaper or paper towels around your work area.

02. Decide what kind of wax you want to use to make your candle

There are several different kinds of wax to choose from. One pound of paraffin wax by weight will equal approximately 20 oz of liquid melted wax.

03. Selecting a wick

A flame that’s too large can produce smoke and soot. It can also make the candle too hot, and in some cases, this can cause the container to break. On the other end of the spectrum, if a wick is too thin, it won’t become hot enough to melt through the entire candle but will instead create an unsightly pit at the center of the candle.
