#7 Homemade Beeswax Candles and Matches {about $7 per gift}

The beeswax candle idea is Emily’s brilliant idea. She invited me over last year and let me use her beeswax. You order the beeswax from Knorr and then make the candles yourself–it makes A TON. They are very charming tied up with ribbon. Paul and I LOVED these and went through the ones we made super fast. The candles would be a cute neighbor or friend gift given with these special matches {check out their site, they’ve got every style imaginable}.

    ok i want to do this but do the sheets come with instructions on how to make the candle? or is it really easy and i am just dumb?

    I believe they come with instructions but it is pretty simple. You just roll the wick up.

    Keep these ideas coming, Jordan. I just ordered some of those personalized pencils. And I’m thinking of getting some for my Bishop, too.
