Ever wondered how to make candles? These Easy DIY Pineapple Candles are SO simple to make, and they smell amazing! Makes a great DIY gift idea for friends, family, teachers, neighbors, and more!
Pineapple is one of my favorite fragrances – it’s so fresh and summery! I’ve already made pineapple soaps and pineapple sugar scrub, so it was only natural that my next pineapple fragrance endeavor would be pineapple candles. Homemade candles are quickly becoming a favorite craft of mine – they’re SO quick and easy to make, and there are a ton of creative ways that you can decorate and finish them! These easy DIY pineapple candles are super cute, and they’re a cinch to make!
Oh, and my friends made some seriously awesome pineapple projects, too, to kick off Pineapple Week at The Weathered Fox, so make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to check them all out!
What You Need to Make Pineapple Candles:
- Soy Wax Flakes
- Candle Wax Pitcher
- Candle Wicks
- 6 oz. Glass Jars
- Candle Wax Colorant
- Pineapple Fragrance Oil
- Black Paint, Green Paint & Paintbrush
- Green Felt
- Hot Glue Gun
How to Make 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 candle pitcher, over low-medium heat, melt four cups of soy wax flakes, stirring frequently.
- Add 3 blocks of yellow wax colorant along with 20-30 drops of pineapple fragrance oil. Mix well.
- Carefully pour the hot wax into the candle jars. Allow the candles jars to sit undisturbed until completely cool.
While the candles are cooling, paint the lids of the jars green. Cut and assemble felt tops as shown in the video above.
Use the hot glue gun to attach the felt toppers to the jar caps. Easy peasy!
