Favor idea: DIY Candles

25 Jul

I love this eco-friendly, unique favor idea featured on Ruffled.  These DIY soy candles will add a personal touch to any bridal shower and can be a fun project for the bridesmaids or those hosting the shower.

You’ll need:

– Soy wax flakes
– Wick
– Containers: Ruffled suggests vintage teacups, recycled jars, old tumblers. I like the idea of mason jars.
– Pitcher with spout
– Fragrance oil: Ruffled recommends looking on Etsy.
– Popsicle sticks, chopsticks, or something to hold the wick
– Candle dye (optional)

See all the step by step directions here.

What do you think of DIY favors?

    I’ve been wanting to do this for myself but I can’t decide if it is cost effective…and I’m lazy 😉

    Love the IDEA of DIY favors. But I am just doing a candy bar. I am far too lazy to do this for 150 people. hahaha
