Handmade Candles

For Christmas 2018, my husband bought me a candle making kit.  I made a couple of candles during the Christmas break... and it's taken me nearly a year and a half to finish them off and show them here!

One is in a tin and one in a jar, and I wanted to add a bit of decoration to the tin and a ribbon to the jar.  This took me a matter of minutes the other day, so here they are!

The jar has been used a bit, hence the wax being a bit low.  Also, I overfilled the tin - the wick was getting a bit crushed when the lid was on.  I've since burnt it down a bit, so it's all good now!

I just used some card making decorative paper to cover the tin.  It is very simple, but pleases me!

They are scented with jasmin, which came as part of the kit.  It's not my favourite scent, so I'm thinking of buying some more fragrances to use for the next candles I make (whenever that may be!).  I do like a sweet smell, or something spicy for winter.

So, there you have it - something a bit different from my usual creations!

I hope you are all surviving lockdown, and are well and safe.
