Stylish scented candles, upcycling jars and candleholders

Hi Everyone,

Here a bit of upcycling for your old jars and old tatty candle holders. This is a great gift idea.

You will need:

– Color spray of your favourite color

– A clean jar

– A wick,

– Scented oil

– Beeswax

– A candle holder,

– Strong glue, or glue gun

Jar Candle

First, paint the candle holder with your spray, and let it dry.

As soon as the wax has melted, pour the scented oil (I used around 8ml). Then, keeping the wick as straight as possible with your wood stick, gently pour the melted wax into the jar.

Let it cool down gently outside

Glue generously the top of the candle order, and paste your candle jar. Tadaa….. (I pasted some plastic balls to the lid and sprayed the whole, to make a useful addition. You might want to cover your candle when you don’t use it)

I made a more elaborated one with black lace and creamy ribbon on which I sewed some vintage beads. I sprayed the candle holder in black.
