What you’ll need:

10 oz. of natural soy wax
1 oz. candle fragrance oil
two 8 oz. deep round tins with lids
2 large wooden wicks with bases
candy thermometer
printable candle safety & blank labels {download pdf file}
printable diy soy candle instruction sheet {download pdf file}
full size blank white sticker sheet(s)
three 5″ x 7″ clear poly zipper bags or equivalent
box to put it all in

What you do:

Using a digital kitchen scale weigh out 10 oz. of natural soy wax. Split the wax in half and put 5 oz. in one zipper bag and 5 oz. in another. If you like you can draw labels for the bags of wax onto blank sticker paper and adhere to each bag.

Next, if desired label the candle fragrance oil with a hand drawn label as well. I used a Jammin’ Rock Candy fragrance oil for my kit. It’s a really great scent for kids and I specifically chose this one for my niece. However, you can use any age appropriate fragrance – Snickerdoodle Latte maybe? – or your recipients favorite scent. I’m personally in love with Moonlight Pomegranate.

Print out the sticker candle safety labels and blank round labels for decorating the lid of the tin onto a full page sticker sheet.

Now print out the diy soy candlemaking kit instruction sheet onto a regular piece of paper.

Cut the sticker labels down to fit inside a third zipper poly bag. Place the stickers in the bag along with the two wooden wicks and bases.
