DIY Scented Candles – The Perfect Home Decor Project

DIY Scented Candles - The Perfect Home Decor ProjectWho doesn’t love the friendly glow of a beautifully scented candle? It creates the right mood for any occasion and can be enjoyed in your own home or given as a gift. And these days, making your own candles is a quick and simple DIY home decor alternative to buying expensive brand name offerings.

There are some amazing benefits to making your own candles. You get to mix and match scents and styles that work with your design choices. You can make personalized gifts for family, friends, and coworkers, and your creative confidence will skyrocket.

Once you discover how much fun it is to make your own scented candles, and how many choices there are, you won’t want to stop. You’ll want to design an entire collection to complement every room in your house. Candle making is a fun and addictive process. Once you know how to do it, you’ll never look back.

Where to Get Supplies

First, do a search for candle making supplies online. Head over to Amazon or check out your local craft stores like Joann’s or Michael’s. There are several reliable vendors that specialize in selling them. Look for their candle making starter kits. One candle making starter kit will come with all of the essential items you need to start pouring your first candles.

If you don’t want to wait for a kit to be delivered, check with your local craft supply store. Many of them now carry complete candle making kits.

A good starter kit will usually come with wax, fragrance, containers, wicks, wick stickers, warning labels, a thermometer, and a pouring pitcher. It will also come with written instructions or a link to a how-to video. These companies want you to have fun making candles, so don’t be afraid to call or email them if you have any questions.

Mix & Match

Candle making allows you to explore and personalize home decor ideas to your heart’s content. Did you know that there are multiple styles of containers that you can select from? For instance, if your home design theme has a western or southern vibe, go country chic with old-fashioned mason jars. Prefer a contemporary-modern look? Hip glass tumblers or sleek silver tins will look amazing on glass tabletops.

The real fun of making your own candles comes from picking out scents that speak to you. The whole point to DIY home decor is making an item that represents what you love. And there are thousands of candle fragrances available. Your options for personalization are endless.

Love all things food? Have fun picking out hot baked apple pie, chocolate fudge or bacon fragrances. Nature lover? Southern pine, ocean mist, or wildflower meadow is calling your name. Are you a born romantic? Try summer honeysuckle, lush red roses or a chocolate raspberry.

You can even find novelty scents like beer and rubber tires. Or dare to be different and start blending scents to come up with new ones that are truly unique to you.

Candles are beautiful DIY home decor accents that lend beauty and fragrance to every room. They also make wonderful gifts for friends, family, and coworkers. When it comes to do-it-yourself projects, candle making is one that you will enjoy for years to come.
