After my last candle project, I’ve had a whole other bag of soy flakes that have been begging to be used. So, I thought I would give candle making another go. And this time, I went a little fall-centric….and made DIY pumpkin candles in actual pumpkins (and gourds). This was a fun one! And the candles ended up smelling delicious too.
The full tutorial can be found over on Momtastic, but here are a few photos (and outtakes) to get you started.
These candles make a fun hostess gift, if you’re attending a fall get-together, or use ’em for holiday decorating (Halloween and Thanksgiving). They’re really easy to make. I promise! Grab the tutorial here.
