Five Minute DIY Dollar Store Candles are the answer to all your Candle Needs! You can have an array of beautiful candles in a minutes. Oh so budget friendly too.
The world has a love affair with candles but we don’t always have them on hand. So… when you want the beauty of a candle and your stock is gone… you can make some literally in a snap if you have a little stock of floating wicks and some Dollar Store Candle Glassware. What you add to the mix is all up to you… just let your imagination soar!
Let’s start out with some simple supplies. You will need Floating Wicks (these tiny little treasures open up a world of candle possibilities), Dollar Store Candle Glassware (the Dollar Store has an incredible array of glassware for candles… they all have a high end look and there is no need to spend more when you have these at your fingertips!, assorted items to submerge in water such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, greenery, faux flowers and greenery, let your imagination soar … as long as the items can handle water… go with it! Then you will need some regular water and some Olive Oil, Canola Oil or Vegetable Oil. That is it! You can also use floating candles or small tea candles.
The next step is super simple. Just load up the glass with your items… in this case I just layered Lemons and Oranges with a touch of Rosemary and Cranberries.
Now you will simply pour regular tap water into the glass to cover the fruit but leave 1/4 empty for your oil. You also might want to add 10 drops or more of your favorite essential oils.
Top off the water with a layer of oil at least 3 tablespoon… (the more oil you use… the longer the flame will burn).
Assemble your floating wick (it’s simple… there are discs and then little wicks… you simply put the wick through the whole and it is ready to go!
Light the wick and viola!
Make as many as your little heart desires!
Soooooooo many possibilities await you!
Can you picture and entire table runner of these!
That is how easy these are to create.
