DIY Cookie-Cutter Candles

DIY These Charming Cookie-Cutter Candles

Not only are these little candles seriously cute, the cookie cutters can be used once cleaned to make tasty cookies! Or pop them out of the cookie-cutter molds for sweet minicandles that look so chic. And you can use old ends of candles to make these cute adornments that also make special homemade gifts.

What You'll Need:

  • Candle ends
  • Crayons (optional)
  • Small saucepan
  • Small glass or metal bowl or clean tin can
  • Parchment paper
  • Cookie cutters
  • Sheet pan
  • Candlewicks

Directions:

  1. Start by simmering water in a small saucepan. Place a heat-safe metal or glass bowl, or tin can, filled with candle ends, in the saucepan, creating a homemade double boiler. You can add a bit of color to the candles by dropping bits of crayons in with the candle ends. Once the wax is around 100˚F, you're ready to start pouring.

  1. Cover the sheet pan with parchment paper and then position the cookie cutters on the tray. Place a candlewick in each cookie cutter, or run a length through the center of the candle for a cute standing candle.

  1. Now slowly pour the wax into the cookie cutters while gently pressing down, which helps keep the cookie cutter in place and the wax where it belongs. And if you pour the wax while it's too hot, things get messy.

  1. Once the wax has completely cooled, you can pop the candles out of the cookie cutters or leave as is. Just make sure to burn in a votive or on a candleholder to prevent the wax from getting all over the place.
