Customize Your Candles And Be Stylish

Aug 18, 2007
Making your own candles can be very easy to do; you truly only need to follow some instruction and soon you could be on your way to creating the unique candle you imagined in your thoughts.

In fact, if you run a simple online search, you will find that there are a lot of different methods for you to make your own candles.

Whatever method you choose to create your own candles, it is essential for you to include your down dose of creativity into the candle making. That is the ingredient needed to make your scented candles unique and original. So, what tools could you use to making scented candles with your own imagination and style?

As you follow the conventional steps of candle making, keep in mind the following tips in order to make your scented candles original:

1. Make use of materials that let you have fun whilst you explore your creative style and add your own style to the scented candles. Non-flammable items like sand, shells, metal charms, beads, marbles, pebbles, glitters, aquarium gravel, artificial jewel or pearls, and so on are among the most ideal things to include and add on to your scented gel candle to make it unique.

2. Add colors that match the items you use and include within you scented candle. If you want the touch of "beach", you can use aqua blue along with some shells, aquarium pebbles or gravel. A very stylish idea would be to include a miniature star fish in your candle. You could go on to mixing beads with glitters on your candle as well, as long as you always keep in mind color coordination.

3. Place some of these little objects at the bottom part of the container before freely putting them in the other portions of the container. This will help hide the wick tab.

4. As you pour scented gel candle, add these tiny objects slowly in layers. Ensure that you place these objects away from the wick. Keep in mind that: the closer the objects you add on are to the outside portion of the container, the more "visible" they will finally be.

As you make your own original candle, you will definitely enjoy working with and experimenting with different colors and styles. What makes the scented candles unique and special is the fact that they are created out of pure pleasure and fun. Personalizing your own candles is definitely another great idea. You could try, for instance, to use cut-outs of your name on the candles you create.

As you develop your own unique sense of style, do not forget to work safely and do not risk quality of the product over appearance. There needs to be a balance of both to create the perfect candle. In the end enjoy the art of candle making, and enjoy decorating your home with your own little creations.

Finally, when you feel like you have gotten really used to making your own original scented gel candles, why not try it out as a small business? Now that's an idea!
