Learn how to make these fun DIY gemstone candles to decorate your space or as homemade gift ideas!

Looking for a fun craft project to start your new year? Then try your hand at these DIY gemstone candles! These DIY gemstone candles are a fun way to decorate your space or make them as homemade gifts throughout the year for nearly any occasion. They’re great for weddings too!

DIY Gemstone Candles

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

What you’ll need:

beeswax
soy wax
micas or candle dye in colors of choice
medium wooden wick
shallow heat proof ceramic or glass bowl (at least 5.65″-6″ in diameter)
diamond silicone mold
digital scale
large Pyrex measuring cup and microwave (or a double boiler)
fragrance oil of choice

What you’ll do:

Begin by making your gemstones to use as decoration around the outside of the candle. To make these, use a digital scale to weigh out 3.75 oz. of beeswax to fill all six of the diamond shaped mold cavities. (If you don’t want yellow gemstones, use white cosmetic beeswax.) Combine in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat at 50% power in the microwave until the beeswax has melted. (Alternately you can use a double boiler.)

These DIY gemstone candles are a fun way to decorate your space or make them as homemade gifts throughout the year for nearly any occasion.

Once melted, mix in mica powder of your choice until you reach the desired color. Now pour the melted and colored beeswax into the mold. Allow the beeswax to harden completely, then carefully remove the beeswax diamonds from the mold cavities.

Now prepare the soy wax for the bowl. The amount of wax and fragrance oil used for your candle will vary based on the size of the bowl you choose.

Fill the bowl with soy wax flakes by scooping them into the bowl until it’s full. Weigh out the amount of soy wax in the bowl. You can do this by placing a large Pyrex measuring cup onto your digital scale and pressing tare. Once the weight equals zero, add the soy wax to the Pyrex measuring cup on the scale. Record the weight of the soy wax you have.

Now melt your soy wax either in the microwave or in a double boiler. Once it has melted, remove from heat.

Place your wooden wick in the center of your bowl while you are waiting for the soy wax to cool down. Simply place the wick into the metal base, dip into the melted wax, then place in the center of the bowl.

Once your wax starts to cloud, it’s ready to pour. If you are using a fragrance oil, weigh out the fragrance oil at 10% of the amount of soy wax you previously recorded. So if you have 5 oz. of melted soy wax, you’ll weigh out and stir .5 oz. of fragrance oil into the wax.

These DIY gemstone candles are a fun way to decorate your space or make them as homemade gifts throughout the year for nearly any occasion.

Now pour the scented soy wax into the bowl around your wooden wick. Allow the soy wax to solidify completely.

These DIY gemstone candles are a fun way to decorate your space or make them as homemade gifts throughout the year for nearly any occasion.

Now place your gemstones around the outer edge of your bowl of solidified soy wax. You’ll want to leave a wide circle around the wick where the soy wax will pool once lit so that it doesn’t melt your gemstones as it burns.

These DIY gemstone candles are a fun way to decorate your space or make them as homemade gifts throughout the year for nearly any occasion.

Now weigh out about 1/3 to 1/2 of the amount of soy wax you recorded earlier. Melt the wax, allow to cool, then add your fragrance oil at 10% of the new amount of soy wax. Now pour the soy wax around into the bowl around the wick and gems.

These DIY gemstone candles are a fun way to decorate your space or make them as homemade gifts throughout the year for nearly any occasion.

Allow the wax to cool and harden completely.

Learn how to make these fun DIY gemstone candles to decorate your space or as homemade gift ideas!

Wait 24 hours before lighting your candle. Then cut the wick to 1/4″ and light.

These DIY gemstone candles are a fun way to decorate your space or make them as homemade gifts throughout the year for nearly any occasion.

Be sure to follow all safety precautions entailed with burning your candle and keep it away from flammable objects. Also be sure to blow your candle out if you leave and never leave your candle burning unattended.

This super easy DIY gem bath melts recipe requires just a few simple ingredients to create a beautiful and luxurious DIY wedding favor or gift. Or make DIY gem shaped solid lotion bars instead!

If you like my project for making DIY gemstone candles, then you may also like my super easy DIY gem bath melts recipe found here. This project uses the same diamond silicone mold as my DIY gemstone candles.
