Teatime Candles

Today, on day 7 of my 31 Days of Flipping Out, I’m doing a double post. In this article,  I want to share with you my sweet daughter’s latest flip. Later today, you will receive a second post about an important part of Mobile , AL life.

As an Art History minor, my daughter is another creative one in our family and it gives me great joy to share her ideas with you. Amy loves candles, incense and all things fragrant. She also loves to make things and give them as gifts to those who might feel a little under the weather or might be celebrating something exciting. She works in a coffee/tea shop and as a result has access to empty tea cans, so she brought a few home.

She purchases soy wax flakes, wicks and fragrance at local hobby stores and within just a few minutes (minus the drying time), has several candles ready for gifting.

She prefers the way a wooden wick burns and smells as opposed to braided cotton, but that is a matter of taste. You can use either. Just be sure to buy treated wood; it burns and lights much easier.

 Using a sturdy piece of dry cookware, heat the wax in a glass jar until melted.

Once melted, just pour the wax into your containers with the wick in the middle of course.

Next you add your choice of fragrance. You could choose scents that are close to the name of the tea, but my girl loves the smell of the ocean.

Aren’t handmade gifts the sweetest?

    Like mother, like daughter. That was a great idea. Proud of you Amy, maybe you can give your Mom more good ideas.

    Glad you shared your daughter’s interest and talent. I am tempted to give them a try. I think the containers are such a clever idea. By the way I have a daughter named Amy also.

    Hope you are enjoying the nice weather we have been having. I am trying to get back in the swing of things after our trip.

    I had a candle making kit when I was a little girl and haven’t thought about it in years. What a fun project to get started for Christmas gifts!
