Apple Spice is one of my most favorite fall fragrances – it’s crisp and sweet-tart, and it just reminds me of everything that I love about autumn! I’ve already made Spiced Apple Cider Sugar Scrub and Apple Pie Soaps, so it was only natural that my next apple fragrance endeavor would be candles! Homemade soy candles are quickly becoming a favorite craft of mine – they’re quick and easy to make, and there are a TON of creative ways that you can decorate and finish them! These easy DIY Apple Spice Candles are super cute, and they’re a cinch to make!

How to Make Apple Spice Candles: 

Note: quantities listed will yield three six-ounce jar candles. 

  • Use a drop of hot glue to attach the candle wicks to the center of the bottom of the glass jars.
  • In the wax pitcher, melt four cups of soy wax flakes over low heat, stirring frequently.
  • Add 3 blocks of red wax colorant along with 20-30 drops of fragrance oil or combination of fragrance oils. Mix well.
  • Carefully pour the hot wax into the jars. Allow the candles jars to sit undisturbed until completely cool.
  • Repeat the process for green colored candles if desired.

Note: wood wicks tend to work best if you soak them in oil right before making your candles. I soaked mine in olive oil for about 30 minutes before making my candles.

When the candles are completely cooled, trim the wicks to the desired length with kitchen shears.

cut out felt leaves for candles

Paint the lids with green paint (spray paint makes quick work of the task!) and cut leaves from green felt. Use a drop of hot glue to pinch the base of the leaf closed to add some dimension.
