Many people are looking for unique candle making ideas and for good reason, when you have been making candles for as long as I have you start to develop a desire to create candles that are new and interesting. This is not to say that making the same type of candles that you started out with is ever going to get boring, it is just that sometimes you need a change in order to improve your candle making skills and spread your wings in terms of creativity. So what are some unique candle making ideas that you can try?
Well one of my favorites is making candles with crayons, this is very easy to do and you pretty much make these candles the same way that you make normal candles with only a few slight differences. For example, you use crayons as the wax. All that you have to do is to remove all paper wrapping from the crayons, put them in to some boiling bags, place the boiling bags in to a pot of boiling water and that is it! In about ten minutes the crayons will melt in to colorful wax, feel free to mix and match colors or put like colors together to make your own creation.
As far as unique candle making ideas go have you tried to make your own candle molds? The mold that you use for your candles will go a long way. All that you have to do is to get some clay and create a mold for the candle, just be sure of two things. First make sure that the mold is made in such a way that you can actually get the candle out when it dries, if the mold is shaped in such a way that the bottom is bigger than the top then you may have trouble. Also, in order to solve the problem that was just mentioned you can always make a mold that you are going to break after one use, so when the candle dries you simply break the mold away from it.
Another one of the unique candle making ideas that you can try has to deal with the way you resent and make your candle, for example you can make a floral scented candle and use a flower pot as the mold. Or if you want you can use gel candle wax, use a fish bowl as the mold and place sea shells at the bottom of the bowl. One of my favorite unique candle making ideas has to deal with sea shells, simply take a sea shell and pour candle wax in to it and then stick the wick in it, this creates nice little sea shell candles that are perfect for decorating your home or parties.
