My eyes have been opened! I love candles, but I don’t love the price tag. Those fancy jar candles can cost big bucks. They are nice to have around the house in case the power goes out or just for a scent.  I thought I would try my hand at making Homemade Jar Candles. I never imagined just how simple it would be! OMG! It was so easy!

Fill a microwave-safe glass bowl with the wax pellets. Microwave on high for a couple of minutes; stirring and checking occasionally. Depending on the amount, the power of the microwave, etc. , the time can vary. You want your wax to melt completely to a clear liquid.

 

**Tip** Want colored candles? Add in a peeled, broken crayon the color you desire. It will melt along with the wax and color your candle.

While the wax is melting place your wick in the jar, you will be using. Twist the excess wick around a pencil and balance it on top of the jar to hold the wick in place while you pour the wax. Gently pour the wax around the wick filling the container leaving about 1-inch headspace at the top.

 

DO NOT REFRIGERATE.  Allow your candles to cool at room temperature to avoid cracking. If you try to cool them with the fridge or any other cooling mechanism they will crack.

It took me less than 5 minutes to make these candles! They would make an amazing gift, and can be customized in so many ways!

I am planning on hitting the thrift store for some unique (cheap) containers for my candles. I have made 5 Large Candles and still have over 1/2 of my 10 lb bag of wax left. It goes a long way! Considering those large jar candles can be as much as $30 each, you can save a ton of money by making your candles.

  1. I’m just an 11 yr old that loves crafts. My friend made dog bows and gave the money to animal rescue. I’m going to sell these and give the money to a children’s cancer research near me. ???

    1. Amber you are such a sweet thoughtful young lady. I hope you raise lots of money and have fun doing so. Keep up the great work.

  2. That’s so sweet. I’m planning on making a lot of DIY projects to raise money for the Ronald McDonald house, rspca and most likely a cancer research foundation for people I’ve lost.
