While there are tons of beautiful candles out there with lovely scents to buy, there is something special about making your very own candle just for you with all of the things you love. You can get creative with the container you pour the wax into and tie it to a special memory. Choose from a variety of all-natural ingredients to make a candle that is safe and also has personality.

How to Make Beeswax Candles

"I guess I am a maker in every sense of the word.

Even when I know I can get something relatively inexpensively at the store, I still find so much satisfaction in learning how to make it myself at home.

Being a maker allows me to add my own creative spin on everything and enjoy the process of seeing pieces and ingredients become finished things."

How to Make Natural Non-Toxic Candles

"I love burning candles, but I want to make sure they are toxic-free and clean burning. Learning how to make natural non-toxic candles with soy wax, no lead wicks and essential oils was much easier than I thought."

DIY Wood Wick Soy Candle

"We poured some lovely scented soy candles that make the perfect gift. Obviously we're big fans of quality candles here at coco kelley, and this DIY version is no exception. These beauties look and smell divine, but by doing them yourself, you won't have to splurge on those fancy candles."
