You know I love crafts just about as much as I love organization. So, when a preassembled craft kit that gets delivered to my door comes along, I need to give it a try. Labor Of Love is the newest craft delivery service and I wanted to try as soon as I heard about it.
Please note I received a sample of this kit to try out. My opinions are my own and I only bring you items I love and think you’ll love too.
I tried out their DIY SoyCandle Kit in Apple Harvest. After all, fall is right around the corner! Tehe kit arrived in my mailbox in a nice while box. I opened it right away and the smell of the supplies included was amazing. Everything was packed neatly and there was no breakage in transit.
Here’s what’s inside:
Soy wax flakes
2 pre-tabbed wicks
Two 8 ounce mason jars with lids
2 handmade gift tags
I’ve never made a candle. However, it’s also been interesting to me so I was excited to give it a shot.
Here’s what you’ll need on hand:
The whole process took me about 30 minutes. It was super easy too. There are no complicated steps and directions you’ll have to read twice to understand.
- Melt soy wax chips in the pan. You could use a double boiler for this is you wanted. I made sure to stir constantly to avoid burning.
- I made sure the mason jars were ready to go and the wicks were inserted in them.
- Use the clothes pins to hold the wicks in place.
- Add the scent to the wax and stir.
- Using the pot holder, remove the melted wax from the stove and pour it into the mason jars.
- Let cool
- Add twine and or gift tags as desired.
This is a seriously easy craft and for $25 you’ll receive all of the supplies for two scented candles delivered to your door. These make great gifts completed or gift the kit to a craft lover.
You need to let the candles cool completely and then you can burn them. They smell amazing and I THOUGHT I might give one away, but after I lit one, I decided they were both all mine 🙂
