In an era when gifts are usually mass-produced and sold by the dozen off the shelves of Wal-Mart, it can be a challenge to come up with a gift that is both individualized and sincere. If you want to give someone a gift that nobody else will have and that will show how much you really care, you should consider giving a hand made candle.
You make think you do not contain the skill set required to make candles, but armed with the right info, you will soon realize it is not as hard as it may seem. it is an amazingly easy feat to accomplish, and a quick trip to the craft store will reveal a plethora of kits and supplies to help make it easier.
Your basic supplies are simple; wax, something to melt the wax in, something to pour the wax into and usually a pre-made wick for your candle.You can even start with common items found in your kitchen such as a pot and a can.
You will need to purchase wax as most people do not have that laying around their home.As far as the wax goes, you may select a color free type and add color later, or perhaps a pre-dyed wax will suit you as well.. This and how much wax to buy will all depend on how many hand made candles you want to make. If you want to make a gift for a friend, a small amount of pre-dyed wax will suffice.
On the other hand, if you want to give party favors to a large group of friends, you probably won’t want every candle the same color. If this is the case, I would suggest you select a clear wax with a variety of dyes so you can create many different colors of Handcrafted in Canada .. Just consider what exactly you want the candles for, and you’ll have no trouble deciding what supplies you want.
Like any hobby you undertake it will be difficult at first. If you do your homework and gather enough information though, you will be well on your way to creating beautiful and unique hand made candles for years to fun. Enjoy!
