Candles are the perfect accessory for your home. Not only do they add interest to your home decor and set your home into relaxation mode when lit, but candles also have another purpose. They freshen up your home with their inviting scents. Lavender. Lemon. Orange. These are some of my favorite scents that transport me to another place when my eyes are closed.
While I usually use my diffuser to freshen up my home with my favorites, sometimes you just need a candle. When is the last time you found yourself wandering down the candle aisle at your favorite store? Have you ever considered making your own candles? It’s really easy to do when you know what you’re doing. (Warning: I had a candle making nightmare once, so learn from my mistake).
What’s great about making your own candles is that you know exactly what’s in it. There will be no harmful chemicals unless you add them yourself. Plus, it’s a fun craft project. Here are 20 candle making tutorials to inspire you to give candle making a try. Yes, these are 20 beautiful DIY candles you can easily make at home.
