Pumpkin Spice Candles
Nothing says fall quite like pumpkin spice, and these DIY candles will fill your home with the earthy, festive scent of a freshly baked pumpkin pie. These are great for the DIYer, Esty seller, or
even to take to local fall craft shows.
2 cups of wax flakes (soy is best)
One orange crayon (optional)
One teaspoon of pumpkin spice seasoning
½ teaspoon of nutmeg
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
One candle wick
Glass jar (I like to use leftover small jam jars)
- Prep your pot by making sure it is clean and dry.
- Melt the wax flakes in a non-stick pan on low heat, stirring until melted.
- (Optional) Break your orange crayon into small pieces and add them to melting wax.
- Add all your scented spices.
- Wrap the wick around your skewer stick. Lay it across the jar to hold the wick up. You can choose to use a chopstick as well, but we had quite a few of these leftover from grilling season.
- Slowly pour your wax mixture into the jar.
- Let the candle rest in a cool place for about four hours, and then you can cut the wick to preferred length.
Here are some special notes to consider in your pumpkin-scented candle craft.
- The cheaper the crayon, the better it will mix and melt, giving you a more uniform color.
- It has been shown that RoseArt melts better than Crayola, as Crayola is built to withstand higher heat.
- You can skip a step if you use a wooden wick, as they do not require straightening, check out these great wooden wick options. They will also
add a pleasant crackling sound and give your candles a unique look.
