Today, I would like to share with you a new DIY Project : the Advent Calendar Candle. We have been inspired by the lovely red glasses candles found at H&M Home and decided to hack it for Christmas. Let’s have a look !

Candle making soy wax, printable advent calendar tag, candlewicks, wooden clothespin, fragrance oil, heatproof container (we upcycled an old H&M jar), wooden stick.

Step by step

1. Set the wick into your container and secure it with the clothespin.

2. Melt the wax into a double boiler.

3. When your wax is melted, add your fragrance oil.

4. Pour the wax into your container and let it set for 3 hours.

5. Cut the wick with your scissors.

6. Stick the label on your container.

Now it’s done, you just have to check each day before Christmas on the tag and light the candle to scent your home with a pleasant Christmas fragrance.
