    Make your own 'Pumpkin Spice' candles

    So, I was just in the favorite candle scent thread, and I noticed alot of pumpkin spice fans!

    Here's what you can do to make your own yummy scented candles:
    Get some regular bulk candle wax or you can melt down a cheap candle, whatever you have around the house. Dip your candle of choice into the melted wax and then roll it in spices (pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc.). You can repeat the process as many times as you want, but don't forget to let the candle cool for a few minutes first. These candles smell wonderful and look great too! They get that lumpy effect you see in alot of bakery scented candles. I used to make a few of the smaller tapers and then wrap ribbon around them, they make cute little gifts too.

    Thanks for sharing!

    That's such a good idea; I had no idea what to do with the wax i've saved from dead candles. I'll have to dig out some candles and try dipping them in the bits I've been saving.

    I will have to try it. Thanks. Can you also put the spices in the melted candle wax and get the same effect. If you can then doing both would be some really great smelling candles.

    Yep, you can also just put the spices in when making your own candles. What's really nice is getting some scented oil for candlemaking (like pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon for this particular project) and rolling the candles in that too... best smell in the world!
