candle making.

a few months ago now, i was very generously offered to try a candle making kit, from the crafty candle supplies company based in melbourne.

flat lay showing everything in the kit, wicks, tin, soy flakes, thermometer, fragrances and a jug

i was so excited to give it a try when it arrived, and then, of course, didn't get a good run at it for a couple of weeks.

weighing out the soy wax on a st of scales

when i finally had some time up my sleeve (thank you nap time gods!) i had such a great time! who'd have known making candles would be so easy!? and it was a bunch of fun too!
i do love to try my hand at new things, and it was so ace that the kit came with everything you needed!

setting up for pouring candles, wicks stuck to the bottom of the tins, and threaded through an icy pole stick to keep them still

now the question is... do i use my newly made candles at home? or give them away as gifts this christmas??
decisions decisions he he!

the tins after having wax poured into them, now to wait for them to set

have you ever tried your hand at candle-making? what's your favourite candle fragrance?

I’ve never made candles but like you, thought it would be a fun thing to try. It looks like you had everything you needed. What scents did you make?
