Make "Starbucks" Latte Candles for Gifts



Happy Holidays Beauties♡
Tis the season to start thinking what presents to buy and/or make. If you are a candle addict or on a budget, try making soy latte candles as a gift idea. The cost will be cheaper if you plan to make a lot. I made them as gifts last year and everyone loved the quality of it!

In this video, I showed how to make two candles. Overall, I made 12 candles in 8 oz. glass tumblers. I used 4.5 lb. of soy wax with 4.5 oz. of candle fragrance oils that cost $5.00 per candle as a gift. My total was $60 without tax. This does not include the tools expense that I already own like pyrex cup, microwave, popsicle sticks, tape, measuring spoon, and whisk.


Thanks to Audible for sponsoring this tutorial! I have been listening to audio books for the past two years and there are over 150,000 books to discover to spark anyone's interest. Join me with a free audiobook: http://www.audible.com/beautysplurge. It's a 30 day membership trial. I'm hooked on it!

My friends recommended me to watch Divergent so I picked up the DVD for movie night next week. I decided to listen to the book while making candles first. I wanted to see what's the hype about before I end up on my couch watching the movie. If you enjoyed Hunger Games then this trilogy is up your alley. It's pretty good and I'm ready to listen to part two!

  13. People often think that, in love, who loves before and loved many will be disadvantaged. But not so that she consider or measuring feelings for you. Just as she will think and fear appeared permanent.
