Beautiful candles in the stores cost a good $40 plus. I would like to know if anyone knows how to make a gorgeous scented candle at home. Are there any tricks of the trade?

  • Some string and beeswax?

  • I’ve watched people making them on Youtube and it looks fairly easy.

  • I used to make them as gifts and ordered my supplies through http://www.candlesupply.com.au/

  • You can buy candle making kits, cheaper then buying a scented candle, but still a cost. But once you get the gist of how to do it from the kit, you could probably start playing around to make your own

  • Candle making kits I reckon would be pretty cool!

  • i don’t know about making one but go to the reject shop for cheapies

  • Charity shops also have cheap scented candles as people donate them as unwanted presents.

  • I always buy them on special, but you could purchase a diy kit.

  • At my local melts and candles shop, they sell candle making kits from $6 and up it comes with instructions, also have scents you can buy if you have your own kit. Look on eBay for candle making kits also YouTube is a great help and has instructions on how and what to do with candle making.

  • You could always try youtube that’s what I always use when I want to know how to make anything.
