Fall is just around the corner, and pumpkin spice is already starting to emerge again in your favorite lattes and foods. Create this lovely candle set to fill your home with the scents of autumn. These candles are simple to make and would be a fun way to spend a girls’ night in or crafting afternoon.
Set them out on a mantle or side table to give your house an instant rustic aroma with notes of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and sugary goodness.
You could also package these candles to look like a tiny pumpkin (directions below) for the perfect presentation!
Pumpkin Soufflé Candle Kit Contains:
- 3 fluted tart tins
- Soy or beeswax pellets*
- Pumpkin Soufflé Flavor Oil
- 3 candle wicks with bases
* Type of wax may vary depending upon availability.
Heat 4 oz. of beeswax in a melting pot or double boiler at 147° F. When wax is completely melted, pour entire container of Pumpkin Soufflé Flavor Oil into the wax and stir completely.
Pour mixture into fluted tart tins and drop wick into candle. Allow to set for 1 hour or put in refrigerator to cool.
Stack candles on top of each other and tie together with ribbon that you have on-hand. If the stack is unstable, you can wrap a rubber band around first, then cover the rubber band with the ribbon.
Cut burlap into leaf shapes. If you need to tint the burlap, buy a natural color and use spray ink to tint the material. The burlap pictured is lime green, but toned down with Frayed Burlap spray ink by Tim Holtz.
Thread both leaf shapes onto rusty wire, thread wire underneath ribbon and twist in place, then wrap the ends of the wire around a paintbrush or pencil to create curls.
