Candles are beautiful, functional and making homemade scented candles is so much easier than you think! These apple scented candles are a quick DIY project that would make a lovely yet inexpensive gift (if you don’t want to keep them for yourself).
These are so simple to make you will be hooked and want to make more and more!
DIY Baked Apple Scented Candles with Sprinkles
2 Candle Votives
Candle Wax (3 Cups)
Tabbed Candle Wicks
Microwave Safe Bowl
Baked Apple Warming Wax Cubes (I got mine at Walmart)
Please be aware that you are working with very hot objects. So be careful!
2. Then take your glass votives (available at the Dollar Tree and I always see them in thrift stores) and turn them on their side. Pour in about 2 Tbsp of corn syrup. Use a paint brush or your finger to spread the syrup around to cover all edges. This is what will get the sprinkles to stick to the votive.
4.. Now we need to melt our wax. Put your candle flakes into a microwave safe bowl and add the Baked Apple Scented wax cubes on top.
6. While your wax is melting you can get your candle wick and place a small amount of corn syrup on the bottom and firmly press it into the glass votive in the middle.
7. Quickly pour your candle wax into your votives, focusing on pouring directly in the middle and allow to set for about an hour before using.
8. When your wax has cooled trim your wicks to your desired length (usually about a half inch).
All supplies can be found on Amazon or at your local craft store (remember to use your coupon).
These are very easy to customize. Although I used Baked Apple warming wax you could use any scent that your prefer. There are tons of scents to choose from!
