DIY Candle Wedding Favours

You can say thank you to your wedding guests in a million different ways these days but we love the idea of giving a special little keep sake that they can use after the big day. These candles are a great wedding favour for something a bit different.

What you’ll need

Soy wax flakes
Pitcher with spout
Fragrance oil
Lollypop sticks, chopsticks, or something to hold the wick (you can also find readymade ones at candle supply stores)
Candle dye, optional



Melt soy wax flakes in a double boiler, add in your favorite scents and dye. Once flakes have completely melted, set your pot away to cool down for a few seconds. In the meantime, warm up your glass containers using a hair-dryer for a minute. This will help the wax cool more evenly. Pour wax into containers, thread wick with Popsicle stick and let it cool for a few hours until solid. Cut wick about 1/4 inch long. Decorate container as pretty as you like!
