Make Birthday Cake Candles & Giveaway (CLOSED)



I'm in the mood to make soy candles. I forgot how fun they are to make. Yes, I love buying candles but making one from scratch is a unique gift for any occasion. One of the cutest ways to give thanks to our friends and family!

Have you seen my Diamond Inspired Candle DIY? This was my previous video on how-to make soy candles. It was pretty technical. For this post, I wanted to do something fun this time around. Also, I thought this will be a way I can say, "Thank you!" You are my inspiration and I will be giving away my candle artwork weekly with each video/blog post. 

Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube channel for new candle art ideas. I already filmed three more just for this month alone. 




Curious how candles are made? Watch my tutorial on this latest creation here. This can be a gift idea, party favors, and for candle lovers that enjoy dessert scents with the extra cuteness appeal with a cherry on top!

  45. My partner and i read several works inside the bestessays.com legit web sites and also My partner and i notice in which I must work with my own talent. My own study will be plainly not necessarily flawlessly completed thus my own articles ultimately ends up getting superficial. Most of these suggestions could be beneficial to a few of the viewers which furthermore desire to work with their particular article creating.
