DIY Copper Candle

DIY Copper Candle @themerrythoughtSometimes you just need a few more copper accents to scatter around your house, right? These super simple copper votive candles are the perfect thing to add to your space! Plus, theyโ€™re easy to make in big batches and give out as gifts! ๐Ÿ˜‰
DIY Copper Candle @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
-Wax (I just used a large unscented candle.)
-Wide mouth jar or can (I used a wide mouth Mason jar.)
-Copper Caps
-Hot glue

How to make it:
-Cut your wax into small chunks and place in jar or can.
-Place the jar in a saucepan 1/2 full of water โ€“ make sure water level is below the mouth of the jar.
-Heat over low-medium heat, continuously stirring the wax.
-Add fragrance once wax is completely melted. (1 oz of fragrance to 1 lb of wax.) Stir to combine.
-Hot glue the wick to the center of the copper cap. To keep the wick in place, use a clothes pin across the top of the cap that holds the wick in the center.
-Remove the jar from the hot water. Use pot holders!
-Slowly and carefully pour melted wax into the copper caps.
-Allow wax to cool completely and trim wick to about 1/2โ€ณ.
