My son decided to make candles this year for the entire family, and used a similar method for soy wax and fragrance with cotton wicks. He layered several scents, with each layer at different color and ended ip making over 60 cAndles in large mason jars! Everyone was flabbergasted by his gift, it was so,pretty and fragrant, a really big hit! He even bought tiny silicone molds to put a flower design on the top of each one for as personal,touch. This is a great tutorial, thanks for sharing!

One fateful Christmas years ago my brother and I decided to make Christmas candles. After spending hours cleaning red wax off every surface of my mothers kitchen it is not something I have tried again. Thanks to this wonderfully simple tutorial I now know exactly where we went wrong AND I am also determined to make our own candles. I love soft lighting, candles are one of my most favorite things so I am looking forward to lots of wonderful evenings filled with the soft glow and delightful scents of my very own home made candles!

What a great tutorial! I made candles once a long time ago by hand, and this inspires me to take it up again.

Everything is better with infographics. Much appreciated. This makes it easy!

I have a little bit of an obsession with candles. This is great for me! I'm definitely going to make a trip to the store for some supplies.

Candle making has been on my list of crafts to try for a while now. Thanks for this helpful infographic!

This is so cute!! Really love how helpful the visual of the infographic is too!

I've really wanted to try making teacup candles; I am definitely going to use this as a guide!
