Just like the mason jar, the votive candle has long proven to be a DIY classic for its affordability. With a few simple everyday items around your house, such as wood, paper, seashells and other recycled items and a little bit of craftiness and creativity, you can make your own homemade candles rather than buy one. Here are some amazing DIY candle projects for your inspiration.

These votive holders are absolutely divine and so easy to make!

Whether you need votive holders for elegant candlelit dinners or you simply want a bit of beauty around the house, these are a great little project. You can do them as gifts, too. Really, who wouldn’t want a few of these? And, you know that we love cheap and easy DIY gifts.
Great Repurposing Idea for Old Candles – DIY Ice Candles
How many old candles do you have just sitting around the house? You know, the ones that are too short to burn but you just can’t bring yourself to throw them out because they still have that tiny bit of wax left. Henry Happened has a great idea for making your own ice candles using those old candles. You can also make these from soy wax if you don’t have any old candles lying around but I’ll bet you have at least a handful that you need to recycle. This is a great idea for using up all of that wax and you can mix and match your colors to make the candles really special.
