DIY ~ Cinnamon Candles

The other day my friend Deb and I decided that we wanted to do a craft.
We decided to try out some Soy Wax I had and make some candles.
I had never made candles before...so easy!!!
 
 
Here's how we did it.
 
YOU NEED:
 
Scissors
Glass Containers to make them in
Wicks
Large microwavable bowl
Spoon
Soy Wax Flakes
Cinnamon
 
 
First put your soy wax flakes in your bowl to microwave. I used my large Pyrex measuring cup so that I could pour easily.
Microwave the wax on 30 second intervals checking between each time.
Stir if needed.

Place your wicks in the center of each glass dish in preparation for the wax.
 
 
Once was is fully melted, add some cinnamon and stir well.
Pour the wax into the containers holding the wick so that it is dead center of the candle.
 
 
Let set overnight.
Trim your wicks and VOILA!
 
 
Cinnamon candles!
 
They smell so pretty!!!
 
 
Cheers,
Messy
