5 Simply Amazing DIY Candles

The ABC Crafts Series: C is for...candles

Welcome to another roundup in the ABC Craft Series. Last week C was for crochet (check here those 5 very easy crochet ideas!), but C is for candles too!

Candles are a wonderful homemade gift. They are easy to make, and, with little effort and a bit of imagination, you can create beautiful projects.

5 simply amazing DIY candles


So, here are 5 suggestions to make perfect candles to decorate your home or to give as gifts:

The DIY Apple Scented Candles from A Cultivated Nest are just so cute with all those sprinkles. I love the colors too. They would even make a great Valentine's Day gift.

And now, this wonderful tutorial on how to Add Images to Candles byH2O Bungalow. I had no idea you could do this until I started researching for this post, but personalized candles are now on my to-do list.

And finally, these DIY Cookie Cutter Candles. I always love to find amazing projects that can easily be made with materials we all already have at home!


I hope you enjoyed this little collection of DIY Candle Projects. I have a lot more ideas for letter C crafts, so you'll have to bear with me for a couple of weeks more before we move on to D. In the meantime, I'll be posting a special Valentine's day edition later this week!

In case you missed the previous posts, the ABC Crafts series will be covering one (or more) crafts for each letter of the alphabet during 2016. Each roundup features 5 links, grouped around the major theme. All links posted will be DIY tutorials with clear instructions and/or free patterns, so that everyone can easily replicate them.

I've now created a specific page for the series, which will include links to the crafts already covered, and a list of upcoming topics. You can find the page here. If you have suggestions for any of the topics, feel free to leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I will try to include your ideas as much as possible (with proper credit)!

  1. You read my mind! I have a stash of glass bottles in the garage I've secretly hoarded and was totally thinking candles! Thank you for the great DIY finds. I'm totally pinning this. Hopping over from this is how we roll
