Over the last few years, the little ladies and I have developed a real love of candle making! We enjoy dipping them and pouring them and are excited to teach you how to pour your own!
Homemade candles make for such precious gifts, and making them together creates such special memories. The smell of beeswax instantly warms my heart and I know will remind me of this magical time in our lives for years to come!
When pouring candles, I like to use 100% beeswax. We get ours from a friend’s local apiary and clean it ourselves, but I’ve linked a few here, along with the wicks that we use, that you can purchase on amazon.
I like to use thrifted vessels to pour candles into and recently found about 50 antique tins at my favorite local antique store for $30! These little guys are perfect for making special candles. I have repurposed mini crocks, glass yogurt jars, mini soup bowls and all kinds of things for our candles. Just don’t use plastic. ❤
For time sake, I will run you through this pouring tutorial really quickly, but if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I hope this tutorial is helpful and plays a part in creating special memories and gifts for you and your loved ones!
