Description

If you're not in the mood to bake but love the smell of spiced cookies, these Gingerbread Candles are for you! They fill the room with a sweet and spicy scent. They're perfect for gifts and stocking stuffers, and the project works for beginners and more advanced crafters. 

We used HTP 72 Wicks for these candles, which provided a nice, slow burn. We recommend burning these candles for at least an hour to prevent tunneling. If you prefer to light your candles in shorter increments, you may prefer the HTP 93 Wick

  • Skill Level: Beginner

  • Time to Complete: 1 hour

Gingerbread Candle Project
These candles fill the room with a sweet and spicy scent that's perfect for winter and beyond.

Ingredients
Nine 4 oz. Hexagon Glass Jars
9 HTP 72 Wicks
32 oz. Golden Wax 464
2 oz. Gingerbread Cookie Fragrance Oil

Instructions

1

Place 32 ounces of Golden Wax 464 into a heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 60 second bursts. You can also melt the wax slowly in a double boiler. Once it's about 135-140° F, add 2 ounces of Gingerbread Cookie Fragrance Oil and stir for several minutes. Set aside. 

 

2

When the wax cools to about 130° F, pour it into each candle jar. Place the wicks in the center of the candles.

3

If necessary, steady the wick to help it stay centered. Clothespins or popsicle sticks work well for this. Tip: It can be helpful to trim the wicks before placing them so they are not as top-heavy. 

4

Allow the wax to cool and harden completely. Trim the wicks. Light and enjoy! Never leave your candle unattended.
