What You'll Need
Before we get started, let's go over the materials you'll need to make scented sand wax candles. You'll need:
• Essential oil
• Transparent candle cup
• Granulated wax (unscented)
Steps to Making Scented Sand Art Candles
Step 1: Fix the Wick
The first step is to stick the wick in the middle of the transparent candle cup to fix it in place.
Step 2: Add Essential Oils
Next, drop the essential oil into the bag of granulated wax. Be mindful of the amount you use, too much essential oil can overpower the candle's scent and even make it unpleasant.
Step 3: Mix the Granulated Wax and Essential Oils
Using a spoon, mix the granulated candle wax and essential oils until they are evenly distributed. Make sure the scent is to your liking before moving on to the next step.
Step 4: Fill the Candle Cup
Transfer the mixture into the transparent candle cup.
Step 5: Add Colors
Now, it's time to add multiple color to your candles. Use the spoon to add different colors little by little to the mixture. You can get creative with your colors, mixing and matching until you have a beautiful design.
Step 6: Create Your Candle Design
The best part of making DIY sand art scented candles is creating your design. Use the spoon to create different shapes and patterns in the candle mixture. You can create a landscape, swirls, or any design you like. Make it as unique as you want!
Step 7: Enjoy Your Candles
Now, you can enjoy your beautiful scented sand art candles! There are two ways to use them - you can either leave them as a static scented ornament or ignite them to expand the fragrance and create a warm and romantic atmosphere.
Are sand candles safe to make at home?
Sand candles are an easy craft that can be made with either paraffin wax or soy wax. While melted wax is a fire hazard, sand candles are generally safe to make at home as long as proper safety measures are taken. It is important to follow instructions carefully and supervise children during the process.
Making scented sand art candles is both fun and practical, allowing you to customize scents and designs while being a cost-effective way to enjoy your favorites. So why not start making your own candles today?
