DIY Candle For Valentine's Gift

Valentine’s Day is almost here. All the special Day preparation for fun lunch with the kids is made, and I’m sure my husband already arranged our romantic dinner, and the gifts are wrapped.

Yesterday, my daughter came and asked me what to give to her teacher and friends, and I was like, oh, oh, I was too busy with everything else. So I have forgotten the teacher, especially the school bus lady’s Valentine’s day gift.

Valentine’s Day is a perfect occasion to show a little love to the person close to you, such as teachers and friends. As usual, a handwritten card is always the most meaningful thing you can give, and if you want to throw something extra, I have a simple, sweet, and affordable gift Idea.

You can only do so many chocolates and Starbucks gift cards, but when it comes to showing gratitude to a special someone, such as friends and teachers who have done so much for our children, something handmade always speaks to the heart.

So, my daughter and I decided to do a DIY Fragrance candle for her teacher and friends. These candles are easy to make, cute, practical, and swell their hearts.

What you get: Rose and Lavender Dried Flowers, cotton candles wick, Roses fragrance oil, Lavender fragrance oil, Soy Wax, Mica Powder, Candle tins ( I got them from Daiso for $1.50 each), Wooden stir stick, and Recipe card.

What you need: Hot glue gun, Microwave save bowl, Scissors, Measuring cup, and Potholder.


Step 1: Cover your workspace with a protective surface like a newspaper or paper towel. Spread out your materials.

Step 2: Open your candle tins. With a hot glue gun, place a small dab of glue onto the bottom piece of your wick. Place the glued end onto the middle of your candle tin and let dry. Once the bottom has dried, trim one inch from the tip of your candle wick with scissors.

Step 3: Pour half of the bag of wax chips into a microwave-safe bowl. And heat in the microwave for two minutes; use a pt holder to take the bowl out safely. Then stir the chips with the wooden stirrer stick. Reheat if needed, stirring until the wax is completely melted.

Step 4: Once your wax chips have dissolved. Pour the melted wax into a measuring cup. Mix the desired mica color and fragrance with the hot wax until evenly incorporated. Pour the mixture into your candle tin.

Tip: Hold the wick for several minutes until the wax hardens to ensure it is secured to the center.

Step 5: While the wax is still liquid. Place any dried flowers you would like to incorporate into the candle and push gently so that they sink in.

Happy Planning, Everyone, and thank you for reading!
