Tea Candle DIY gifts
What you need:
Soy Wax- 1 pound bag(I used soy candle wax I purchased from Michael's)
Tea cups ( I purchased mine form a local thrift store watch here).
Pan & Fork
Scents ( I used Mint leaves & Almond extract)
Heat the Wax in a pan and add your scent. I used my nose to decide how much scent to use really. I used an entire pack of Mint leaves chopped up and drops of almond extract. I also did a cinnamon one that turned out amazing. Once heated pour your liquid into your molds or in this case tea cups. I stuck the wick in and used utensils to keep them standing straight up as shown. Let stand overnight.
To wrap them for a gift you will need:
Clear basket paper
Homemade stickers ( I used Kidecals)
Just wrap the clear paper around the candles.
Tie it up with the ribbon.
Simple, easy, homemade and fun!
Might I suggest getting help making these. I love making homemade gifts with Mac (see here!).
We have fun doing it and it's a great gift to give someone.
He calls them "daily projects" or "crafts", I call them memories :O)
