Valentine’s Day DIY Candles
Valentine’s Day has this way of sneaking up on you. It’s the same day every year but somehow we get caught up basking in the lull that follows the holiday and new year madness. And then one morning, you wake up and it’s February 13 and you have nothing to send with your kids to school with for their teachers or, you know, that other person in your life who always remembers to give you thoughtful gifts on holidays that might otherwise slip by without your noticing. Or maybe that’s just me?
Well, just in case you’re looking for an easy – and possibly last minute – Valentine’s Day gift that combines mason jars (everyone’s favorite right now) and candles, we’ve got just the thing. Melanie Artz provides a simple, step-by-step tutorial for making vanilla-scented soy candles with a little Valentine cheer in the form of tiny hearts. These would make excellent teacher, grandma or even coworker gifts that could be whipped up in a snap.
With a supply list that’s comprised of just 10 items – many of which you probably already have in your home – these DIY candles can definitely be considered low stress and good for the budget. Also? What a fun project for any time of the year. Easter, 4th of July, fall, Halloween . . . the possibilities are endless for easy, go-to handmade gifts.
