Cut-Out Candles

What a great list of ideas!!

I see that you have homemade candles on your list so Im going to add a specific candle project that is both quick and very cute!

Cut Out Candles

Children will love making these easy candles -- and so will you.

What You Need:

Tiny candles make great gifts.

Cookie cutter, any shape


2 sheets beeswax

1. Cut out shapes. Lay sheets of beeswax individually on cutting board. Cut out shapes with cookie cutter.

2. Stack. Place 2 layers of beeswax together, placing wick in between; press together.

3. To burn candles: Secure them on another small piece of beeswax or on a nonflammable surface so they won't tip over. Do not leave burning candles unattended.
