DIY Pumpkin Candle With PurseBuzz Collab


Happy Halloween Beauties,

Elessa of Pursebuzz and I came together to share our take on our pumpkin spirit for the fall. Watch's Elessa's Pumpkin beauty DIY video here. As for me, I tackled down another candle art creation with a three dimensional candle and a scent to feel all fuzzy inside in pumpkin spice latter. Watch here and enter to win a candle made by me.




Total cost to make 10-12 candles is about $60. I had a lot of fragrance oil let over. This does not include the tools expense that I already own like pyrex cup, microwave, popsicle sticks, tape, measuring spoon, and whisk.
