DIY Christmas Wax Melts Make Great Gifts
Wax melt warmers are nothing new, but recently Glade introduced their new Wax Melt Electric Warmer putting scented wax melts back into the mainstream spotlight. The cool thing about Glade’s wax melt warmers is that they plug right into any electrical socket – no flame required! And there’s even an on/off switch. But just because you buy or own a commercial warmer doesn’t mean you have to stick with mass produced wax tarts. In fact, you can make your own holiday scented DIY wax melts and gift with a wax melt warmer like the one from Glade. Or gift them solo to someone you know who is already in love with wax melts and owns a warmer.
These holiday scented DIY Christmas wax melts are the perfect size to tuck into a stocking, or wrap a bundle of these homemade holiday scented wax melts in a gift box. You can easily customize these DIY Christmas wax melts with any of your favorite holiday scents – color optional! Plus there are free printable labels to add that extra homemade touch to your DIY Christmas gifts!
Ready to get started on this easy DIY holiday gift idea? Just follow the simple instructions below to create your own DIY Christmas wax melts for your family to enjoy!
Holiday Scented DIY Christmas Wax Melts Recipe
© Rebecca D. Dillon
2 oz. 100% natural soy wax
.2 oz. fragrance oil (see suggestions below)

Christmas Tree fragrance oil

This easy DIY Christmas wax melt recipe yields one clam shell of wax tarts. Simply double the recipe as needed for the quantity you’d like to make.
Start by weighing out the wax, then melting in a double boiler or incrementally in a glass pyrex measuring cup in the microwave. Once the wax reaches 185 degrees F – this is the recommended temperature to get the best fragrance from your wax – weigh out and stir in the fragrance oil. (Most of these fragrance oils can also be used to make homemade soaps, perfumes and other bath and body recipes!)
Once the wax has cooled to 110 degrees F, pour into the clam shell and allow your holiday wax melts to set up at room temperature until they have cooled and hardened completely.
Now simply label your Christmas wax melts as desired and gift to your family friends! You can choose from a variety of blank colored or black and white labels and write in your own message.
Or pick from color labels that include pre-printed phrases including: Handmade especially for, Homemade Wax Tarts, and Christmas Tree Wax Tarts! Download the Printable Holiday Wax Tart Labels here. (PDF file format. Includes printable instructions on first page.)
