Step by Step Instructions

  1. Prepare your mason jars by removing the lid and inserting the candle wicks.

2. Melt your soy wax using your preferred method and pour into the mason jars.

I did mine in the microwave using these exact methods.

As outlined in the video, I stirred for 2 minutes after all wax was melted and added coloring and scents at that point. I mixed Eucalyptus mint and Sandal wood.

3. Allow your candles to cool off. After they’ve cooled (over night) you can start decorating them

What I like about using the decorative glass decals is that they while adhere and stick to glass by themselves making it easier to play out where to put them. Once I decided I stuck them on using the hot glue gun. The Jute string and red ribbon were tied on for a little something extra.
