I'm changing the look of this website, but it is a work in progress. You may notice some pages look different than others, until I get the update done. Thank you for your patience!
Candle crafts bring light and warmth into any home. Browse my collection of candle crafts to find the perfect candle to make for any season.
Many of these crafts show how to create unique candle holders. One of my favorites is turning a regular wine bottle into a candle holder. I show how to do this using the top of a food can lid and using the holder from a tealight. You can decorate the wine bottle in any way you choose, but in this project I glued seashells on it to make it a summer decoration.
I also love working with gel wax. It is an easy type to wax to start with. It is pretty easy to work with and to clean up! I love the translucent look of it.
Two of my favorite candle crafts using this type of wax is the champagne gel candles and the gel wax candle holders. Both of these candles are created using a wine glass. The champagne flutes look just like champagne, especially from the natural bubbles that form within the wax when you stir it.
The gel wax candle holders are completely reusable because a glass votive holder is first placed inside the wine glass, the gel wax is poured around it. A new tealight or votive can be replaced at any time into the votive holder.
I hope you find a candle craft you would like to try. Remember, candles make great gifts too!
