How neat!


they turned out great! the glass cups were a great find.

i got one of those candlemaking kits as a kid and made a bunch of animal-shaped candles for my older siblings. :)


Great candles!

I made candles as a child, too. My mother bought big slabs of candle wax (14 x 24 inches) and we had fun using it.


I've always wanted to do that also. I will have to put it on my list for the upcoming year. :)


These are beautiful! How fun! I remember making candles with my grandma when I was a kid.

WOW! I'd call this a BIG success!

Pretty candles. I made them years ago and always enjoyed using them. I gave plenty as gifts, too. They are fun to make. Yours are lovely.


Great idea, was it easy. I have wanted to try this but thought it would be difficult.


Very pretty! The cups were a great find.

They turned out so pretty...love the color.


I love candlemaking, my first experience was in girl scouts, making sand candles in the sand at the beach. During the 70s, we made all kinds that were fads, lacy ice candles, novelty candles wth whipped wax (got in trouble with my mom, cause I destroyed her blender with wax) and in the 90s, I obtained beeswax from an aquaintance who kept bees, and tried my hand at beeswax candles.. hand dipped, then got candlestick molds. The smell is heavenly. You've got me wanting to do give it a try again.


Sounds as if you'll have your gift giving all figured out for next year! I take it that it was fun.
