Homemade Candles and Wax Melts

Since my son is on spring break I try to find some projects throughout the day that we can do to keep him entertained. Today we decided to make a few homemade candles. We made a purple one with Lavender scent and what we thought would be a green one which actually has more of a white tint to it. The "green" one is sandlewood. Then we decided to make more wax melts. We made those a darker green and a peppermint scent. We can't wait for them to finish setting up so we can see if we actually like the scents. So far the Peppermint smells decent, the lavender smells great and the sandlewood kind of smells like a desired scent.

I have a wax warmer and don't reuse the wax like I should but they only cost $2 a 6-8 pack here anyways.

I have a few packs of glade melts I got for under .50 with my coupons. I love when the seasons change and they clearance them all out. I save my coupons for then. However this time we made them because we melted a little bit to much wax for our candles so I grabbed and almost empty pack and we made some melts.

@carebear29 That they do! I use to have candles and the wax melts burning all the time. Here lately I have just been turning on the wax melt burner.

That sounds like a great way to spend a spring break time.

He turns 4 next month so he can get bored easily so I try finding different things to keep him entertained. He loves doing arts and crafts as well as reading and writing.
